Igor Stravinsky's The Firebird in a fine rendition by Pierre Boulez and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is one of the fabulous things you can find on youtube today. This french-russian highlight of late romantic early modern orchestral music is one of the major sources for many later film scores. It is not easily played and needs a very carfully directed flow to actually work its full magic.
