New blog alert! Musical Perceptions is written by Scott Spiegelberg, and looks to be specialising in Classical music. Good post on the Rite of Spring riots which is worth a read. He's dead right that the fact was that Parisian audiences of the time just enjoyed a good riot, and it had very little to do with the music. Milhaud makes much the same point in his autobiography (the nauseatingly sweet My Happy Life), as he had to deal with his fair share too.
