The day seems to have passed, thankfully, for at least one development sparked by Stravinsky 's The Rite of Spring : the concert review in ersatz, proto-Dr. Seuss-style verse, e. Certainly, the impact of this legendary event as well as similarly "colorful" receptions to the work elsewhere expedited its recognition as an all-around seminal occurrence and achievement in the social history and art of the twentieth century.
At the same time, the scenario adopted by the Rite collaborators -- Stravinskyfolklorist and artist Roerichchoreographer Nijinsky, impresario Diaghilev -- was far from the usual genteel, sentimental, and romantic themes that had theretofore Part I: Adoration Of The Earth - Stravinsky* - Dickran Atamian - The Rite Of Spring ballet. This collection of "Scenes from Pagan Russia" the work's subtitle concerns itself with an exploration of nature, both human and that of the earth itself, through the rituals of renewal -- ultimately, human sacrifice -- of an earlier, "primitive" society.
The titles of the ballet's two main sections, "A Kiss of the Earth" and "The Exalted Sacrifice," as well as those of their internal divisions, make clear both the ritualistic, sacred, and inviolable progression of events reenacted via music and choreography, and the elements of that progression. Stravinsky skillfully sustains and continually Part I: Adoration Of The Earth - Stravinsky* - Dickran Atamian - The Rite Of Spring a sense of brutal inevitability over the span of the whole work while encapsulating more specific elements in individual scenes.
The Introduction raises the curtain on the earth itself, the distinctive bassoon solo plaintively establishing a hushed, reverent mood. More complex colors -- which Stravinsky achieves through extreme instrumental ranges as in the above instancespecial playing techniques, and endlessly changing combinations drawn from Menuetto - Mozart* / Grumiaux Trio, William Bennett - Flute Quartets greatly expanded orchestra -- gradually emerge and expand, only to be cut off subito by a remnant of the original bassoon theme.
Comparable instances of such rhythmic and harmonic harshness abound throughout the work, these elements assuming, along with instrumental color, both individual and collective roles in a manner analogous to those of the characters. Like the musical elements Stravinsky uses in their portrayal, the girls, youths, and elders function together within the identity of their society, at the same time assuming and asserting individual roles in relation to one another.
