First performed at the Paris Opera in June 1910, this piece put Stravinsky on the map and is considered one of his greatest works. In 3/4 time, the arrangement serves as a wonderful opportunity to introduce or reinforce triple meter. The grandiose conclusion is certain to be met with grandiose applause. (1:45)
