Lena Proper Music? (47) RE: Proper Music? 07 Nov 00

The European version is different.Half of the audience walked away during the premiere.But after all,it was the fashon in Paris since The rite of Spring.I remember the piece was commissioned from the Opera du Paris,which was still under Astruc at the time and was trying to replace the amazing experimental landscape that Ballets Russes had been providing...Ah,yes,it was a piece for Ida Rubinstein.1928.I'm also pretty sure that Bronia Nijinska,Nijinsky's sister, put up the choreography-she had been working with Ravel before,and worked in tandem with Stravinsky and Gontcharova for the premiere of one of my favourite 'fo'lk-classic'pieces,'Les Noces'.Aaah,golden times...(now you really find the thread in this posting...)
