The Riot of Spring is a fantastic album compiled by Ashley Hutchings and featuring music based upon historical dramas, large and small. To compliment this release Ashley has especially recorded the title track (over 6 minutes long) based around the historical events of 1913.

On the 29th May 1913, The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky premiered at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. Not knowing whether to be more appalled by Stravinsky's uncompromising experimentations in dissonance, tonality, rhythm and meter or by Vaslav Nijinsky's unconventional, horizontal, pigeon-toed choreography, the Parisian audience reacted as their instincts told them. They rioted. Stravinsky and Nijinsky, it seemed, had succeeded in achieving the holy grail of art - they had created something entirely new.
