The Paul Taylor Dance Company 1980 Premiere

Stravinksy's Le Sacre du Printemps (2 piano version)

This is the two piano version. Really it's originally one piano 4 hands. But we did it, as everyone does, on two. Donald York, the music director of the Paul Taylor Dance Company performing the lower part, and myself on the upper part. Very exciting high pressure music, performed with very nervous page turners, for a few years at City Center in NYC and subsequent national tours. My wife, Beth's sister Ruth Andrien was one of the principle dancers at that time and has the leading dance role and so she performs the dance of death at the end, here. 1980-1985
