The Rite of Spring

For those of you who don't know, today, May 29 is the 100th birthday of what is perhaps Igor Stravinsky's most famous work, The Rite of Spring! It apparently caused riots on its parisian opening (people hated it), but soon came to be recognized as one of the foremost developers of 20th century classical music.
I for one quite enjoy this piece (though it's not for everyone). For your convenience, here's a quite splendid animation of the piece:
Too bad there was no google doodle though. That would've been amazing.
