With 2013 being the Centenary year for Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Philharmonia Esa-Pekka Salonen discusses his relationship with this seminal work, and its continuing relevance in a 21st century context. To mark the Centenary, Esa-Pekka Salonen is touring the work across Europe with the Philharmonia Orchestra, a tour culminating in a concert at Paris's Theatre des Champs-Elysées, the venue of the work's infamously riotous première.

The London Centenary concert will take place on Thursday 30th May at 7.30pm, at the Royal Festival Hall. For more information, please visit philharmonia.co.uk/concerts/30may13

The Rite of Spring with Esa-Pekka Salonen is also touring Hamburg, Paris, Madrid, Dresden, Vienna, and Ljubljana.
