It's weird for me to even think of The Rite of Spring as anything but a beautiful and complex masterpiece, and that people thought the polyrhythmic twists and turns was just "noise" is almost laughable. It didn't take long though for people to 'get it', a year later, the music was finally applauded and Stravinsky was carried through the streets on the shoulders of the crowd.
