Rite of Spring piano lesson to commemorate 100th anniversary of Rite of Spring premiere

My poor adult student Vivian! Knowing she is an awesome sightreader, I pretty much hijacked her lesson and forced her to sightread the RH part of the primo part of the piano reduction (four-hand, one piano) by Stravinsky of The Rite of Spring, but we had fun!!!

“Spring Rounds” from Le Sacre du Printemps piano reduction:


May 29, 1913: The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky premiered at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
