Leonard Bernstein - The Rite of Spring rehearsal

(video link)

Leonard Bernstein (August 25, 1918 – October 14, 1990) schools the Scheswig-Holstein Music Festival Orchestra on Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.

If you have the opportunity to experience this piece live or on video, you'll see how insanely beautiful it is and how much work and passion must go into it for both conductor and orchestra. Mr. Bernstein and company offer us a little taste.
