Jeannette Fang and Jeremy Thompson, piano four-hands
Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, although over one-hundred years old, remains as audacious a work as it was at its premiere which caused a famous riot by the audience. Yet, it is one of the most influential pieces of 20th century classical music. It is contrasted here with Debussy’s La Mer, another major composition also premiered in Paris less than a decade earlier. These two major orchestral compositions are played in versions for piano four-hands arranged by the composers. No charge.
