Be careful if you fall asleep during a classical concert

Composers have a tendency to make you jump.

Stravinsky’s Firebird has a slow, peaceful opening, then a really sudden BOOM. Evidently, a woman dozed off during this bit and got a fright.

Disney also took this piece and added it their Fantasia 2000 sequence, and it looked brilliant. (L’oiseau de feu literally means “The Bird of Fire”)
