Russia in the Round

TCHAIKOVSKY The Nutcracker (excerpts)
STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring

There’s no more famous ballet premiere than that of The Rite of Spring in Paris in 1913; the story of the ensuing riot in the audience lives on.

It is now generally accepted that the ‘problem’ was Nijinsky’s choreography, not Stravinsky’s music. Just a year later, the concert version was hailed as a triumph and the work became enshrined in orchestral repertoire and in the landmark Disney film, Fantasia.

This transcription for one piano, four hands, was made by the composer himself and captures all the energy and vitality of the original.

 “My music is best understood by children and animals.” Igor Stravinsky
