The intensity of the music is almost unbearable. It seeks to crush and liberate the listener at once. The virgin is subjected beneath the 11 percussive blows that confine her, and in her face you see the dichotomy of her agony and ecstasy.
Glorification of the Chosen One  by  Stravinsky
Listen from  23:24  to  24:56
With Permission:  2013 Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Recorded live in Roy Thompson Hall, December 4 & 6, 2008
