MS Multimedia Stravinsky Rite Of Spring PC CD reference dance nature music tools 






The Rite of Spring is an insightful exploration of this passionate and powerful piece, the innovative ballet that gave it visual expression, and the artistic milieu that influenced its creation. Enter the mysterious, primordial past of Le Sacre du Printemps and feel the full force of Stravinsky's genius - it's an incredible, captivating learning experience!

Immerse yourself in Stravinsky's world. Stravinsky's World takes you from Russia in the late 1800's to the avant-garde Paris of the early 1900's to Hollywood in the 1960's revealing the events and influences that shaped Stravinsky's life and work.

Discover the dance. The Rite as Dance focuses on the original 1913 Paris Production of The Rite of Spring. You'll soon understand how the combination of the innovative choreography of Sergei Diaghilev and Stravinsky's music gave the artistic world, in the words of Robert Winter, "a jolt from which it has never fully recovered."

Learn the Rite stuff! Learning is the most enjoyable when you can use your new-found knowledge, and The Rite Game lets you do just that. A game for one to four players, The Rite Game will test you on varied topics and at varied skill levels with questions about the music and passages from the CD. Answer the difficult questions correctly, and you'll move ahead faster. Here's hoping you get more "rite" than wrong!

Experience the awakening of nature. Music scholar Robert Winter's commentary gives an evocative interpretation so passionately and powerfully descriptive, you'll feel you're seeing the music as well as hearing it. A Close Reading offers a continuous, real-time commentary with the music, Rite Listening explores motifs and concepts common in Stravinsky's works, Stravinsky's Orchestra guides you through the instruments used in The Rite of Spring, and Pocket Audio Guide provides a single-screen overview of the entire performance so you can listen instantaneously to any one section.

For those who try to explain music, and for those who want to understand it, the technology underlying this product represents a striking breakthrough, one that offers us an opportunity to abolish forever the arbitrary distinction between education and entertainment

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
