"Augurs of Spring" Mashup

This is cool. Looks like the recordings are all from the big Decca box of Sacre performances:




There's a video out there of Leonard Bernstein and Michael Tilson Thomas playing the four-hands (or two piano) arrangement; I've been reminded this week that when Stravinsky first played that arrangement around a century ago, his partner was Claude Debussy.

That's excellent! Gotta get me some of those two-piano versions.
