Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring for Piano, Four Hands
SOMETHING TO KNOW:
Stravinsky’s distinctive picture of pagan Russia has inspired commentary and controversy since it accompanied Nijinsky’s choreography in 1913.
SOMETHING TO LISTEN FOR:
In the piano version, made to use during ballet rehearsals, the uneven rhythms and clashing harmonies shine through, particularly in the famous repeating chords of The Omens of Spring.
Recorded live in the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Studio on November 21, 2019.
