I agree with Carey. If you are liking Stravinsky check out Rite of Spring.
The peice which you linked was influenced by ragtime and early jazz. That gave me the idea to suggest to you one of the earliest US composers of what is often refered to as "Classical Music", Louis Moreau Gottschalk. I have to believe that Scott Joplin and the other ragtime composerers were listening to him. Here is a link of his music to check out:

For many years I have been off the deep end with the late piano sonatas of Beethoven; 30, 31, 32. Op 109, 110, 111. ( you can put nos 28, 29 in there too) EDIT: lovely removed the video, so I add Op111, last movement, last sonata in it's place: Click Here (www.youtube.com) ....sigh, the finish is cut off, ...you need to splice it on....

Sublime, Enigmatic, Transcendental. They are a beacon across the eternity of musical sound. 'master class' may help...... Click Here (www.youtube.com)
If this peeks interest, I recommend Pollini as a good place to start. Some interpretations are not nearly so well done.
