This edition brings together - for the first time - the three early ballets of Igor Stravinsky in versions for solo piano. Intended as both virtuoso performance pieces as well as study aids for musicians, they have been carefully proofread against the orchestral scores to insure that they agree in detail. Pretrushka contains all of the music in the original 1911 version, The Firebird is a transcription of the full-length 1910 ballet and The Rite of Spring is presented in a revised form of the well-known Leyetchkiss transcription.
About SMP Level 10 (Advanced)
Very advanced level, very difficult note reading, frequent time signature changes, virtuosic level technical facility needed.

Note to buyers: for pianists seeking the famously hard transcription of Trois Mouvements de Petrouchka I don't think this is it. The real one as I remember opens with the Russian dance and has three staffs. This one is much easier.

A bargain not to be missed
This volume is great value for money. These three great ballets, arranged for piano solo, are a "must" for all Stravinsky lovers and for those wanting to become familiar with his style of composing.
