Stravinsky, Lord of the Dance

Audio will be available later today.

Igor Stravinsky is most famous for his ballets. His music is linked to the Ballet Russes and choreographer George Balanchine. But not everything he wrote was meant for professional dancers. The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra plays the March, Waltz and Polka from Stravinsky's Suite No. 2 for small orchestra.
