Joseph Straus deposited STRAVINSKY’S RITE OF SPRING–EIGHTEEN ANALYTICAL VIDEOS in the group Society for Music Theory (SMT) on Humanities Commons 2 months, 1 week ago
I’ve written and produced a series of 18 analytical videos about the Rite of Spring (roughly twelve hours of video) and posted them on a YouTube channel:
The first five videos deal with aspects of the work as a whole (meaning, form, melody, harmony, rhythm). The last thirteen videos analyze the work in detail: scene by scene, phrase by phrase, note by note. Some of it is a bit technical, but I’m hoping it’s presented in a way that might be of interest to people who are not professionals, although I hope the pros will be interested also.
