Petrouchka at 100

Posted at 9:38 AM on June 14, 2011 by Daniel Gilliam

June 13th marked the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's Petrouchka. You can view the full score here, thanks to the International Music Score LIbrary Project (a sort of Wiki for public domain music), download the Minnesota Orchestra performing Petrouchka, then spend some time in the Library of Congress' collection of color photographs of Russia, from around the same time period (1907-1915).russia.jpg
(Just found the first edition score through Harvard!)
