More matter with less art

The Friday OT: Stravinsky; The Firebird

h/t @fbonacci (aka Pfeifer), an excellent person to have on your twitterstream. Pfeifer put this up on twitter a few days ago and I was luckily online at the time and with an hour of silent office in my immediate future. So it was “oh! look at that! been a long time!” and click thru. That turned out to be an excellent decision as I’ve never heard it played better, with a build-up to the magnificent climax that gets your heart racing. Man, that audience must have been blown away.

You have the Vienna Philharmonic in the year 2000, you have Valery Gergiev waving the baton, you have a kickass 47 minutes of music waiting for you. Enjoy time.
