The Bad Plus tackle Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in Chicago

From the Chicago Reader:

The centennial of Igor Stravinsky‘s masterpiece The Rite of Spring has been celebrated throughout 2013, but Chicagoans will get the opportunity to take in one of the more unusual and provocative treatments of the ballet score when the Bad Plus perform their interpretation—which they call “On Sacred Ground: Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring,” partly admitting the danger of a jazz-oriented trio tackling such an iconic work of modern classical music—Friday night at the Logan Center for the Arts on the campus of the University of Chicago.
