The Devil's Dance is a short animated movement from Stravinsky's famous theatrical work L'Histoire du Soldat. Originally written by Stravinsky for a small instrumental theater ensemble of two woodwinds, two brass, two strings, and one solo percussionist, James Ancona has preserved the original intent of this piece in a concert percussion setting of eight players. Meter changes occur frequently, while constantly shifting accents and dissonant harmonies give it a sinister and sarcastic tone.

This piece comes as a professionally printed and bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or for tablet viewing.
