The Concerto for two pianos was written as a showpiece for Stravinsky's son, Soulima, and is more ambitious than the sonata both in structure and in development of material. The Rite of Spring was originally composed at the piano, and this four-hand arrangement was written for rehearsal purposes, simultaneously with the orchestral score.

Stravinsky decided that, after composing his Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments, he wanted to explore the capabilities of the piano as a solo instrument. Stravinsky had in mind a piece for which no orchestra would be needed (in case he lived in a city where no resident orchestra was actually established) and which could be played by himself and his son, Soulima Stravinsky. This Concerto is divided into four movements, even though the third movement is also split up into four different parts. A typical performance of this work should last approximately 20 minutes. The Rite of Spring (discography). Symphonies and concertos.

Hill and Benjamin Frith played this with a balance of serenity and a vast, celebratory resonance. Each player was acutely attuned to the sonorities realised by the other, moving on a slow trajectory towards the culminating final Amen de la Consommation. As the last sound died away, Hill’s head was bowed long and low over the keyboard. The audience was similarly transfixed.

Hearing Benjamin Frith and Peter Hill play Stravinsky's own piano- duet version of The Rite of Spring on the Wigmore Hall's Bosendorfer on Tuesday evening, it was impossible to separate the music from its more familiar orchestral colours. That isn't always the case with keyboard arrangements, however well-known the original. Well, in this case, the piano version was the original - at least, Stravinsky found the music at the piano and said that he could play the final Danse sacrale before he knew how to write it down. It's a tribute to his imaginative ear that the harmonies.

Peter Hill, Julian Rushton. The Rite of Spring is Stravinsky's most revolutionary work. This important new book provides a comprehensive guide to the work, telling in vivid detail the story of its inception and composition, of the stormy rehearsals which led to the scandalous premiere on 29 May 1913, and of Stravinsky's later betrayal of the ballet's first choreographer, Vaslav Nijinsky

Shortly before its notorious Paris ballet premiere in 1913, this was essentially how The Rite of Spring first saw the light of day: Leif Ove Andsnes and Marc-André Hamelin recapture the heady, visceral thrill which must have been in the air when Stravinsky sat down at the piano with Debussy to create this landmark of modernism. Leif Ove Andsnes appears courtesy of Sony Classical International. There is a sonata and a sonata-like Serenade, some arrangements including the brilliant Three Movements from Petrushka, and a longish list of mostly (not entirely) occasional short pieces. But for the most part he treated it as a sort of musical functionary. The resulting concerto belongs to a time when Stravinsky was thinking more and more about concert tours, less and less about ballet and the theatre in general.

Could someone confirm that the Rite of spring here is actually the 2 piano version, and not just another recording of the piano, 4 hands (piano duet)?
