Modern String Quartet - the Rite of Swing UMR 137, 2018
A Tritbute to Duke Ellington and Igor Stravinsky
With this new edition of “The Rite of Spring”, an attempt has been made to create a symbiosis between Igor Stravinsky und Duke Ellington. It seems, thereby, so natural and non-contradictory that the worlds of classical music, new music and jazz can cross borders, becoming integrated within Stravinsky’s works. Thus arise the energy and immediacy of this magnum opus in quite a unique way, conceiving “The Rite of Swing”.
