Minneapolis jazz trio The Bad Plus have previously tackled the work of Russian-born composer Igor Stravinsky, adding a nimble variation of his Apollo ballet to 2009's For All I Care. But that disc also included interpretations of work by groups ranging from Wilco and The Flaming Lips to Nirvana and Outkast, an indication of the musical bravado and stylistic esprit these three wield. Tonight, they'll tackle Stravinsky's riot-inspiring hallmark, the dramatic and difficult The Rite of Spring. Duke Performances, inching toward the end of a landmark season, presents this as another commission and world premiere. —Grayson Currin
