ver the years, I've developed a greater, if still narrow, appreciation for contemporary classical music. One modern conductor I've always enjoyed, however, is Stravinsky. The Rake's Progress is arguably the best-known of his operas, and it's certainly one of the more accessible. Here's the opening of the opera, with the late Jerry Hadley (no relation) and Dawn Upshaw in a rather modern adaptation from the 1996 Salzburg Festival, with Sylvain Cambreling conducting.
