Sergey Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No 1 in D, Op 19
Igor Stravinsky: 'The Rite of Spring'
(Paris had seen revolution and turmoil, yet it didn't quite know what to think of Stravinsky's epoch-making ballet The Rite of Spring and the curious footing of Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto, both of which were premièred in the city.)
