    Stravinsky / Vronsky & Babin 1952: Petrouchka Danse Russe

    David Hertzberg

    by David Hertzberg

    In this 1952 performance arranged by Victor Babin (1908-1972) for two pianos, Vitya Vronsky (1909-1992) and Babin perform Danse Russe from Stravinsky's "Three Movements from Petrouchka." I created this music video from the LP depicted above, issued in 1952 on the Columbia label, serial number ML 4470. All images are taken from the LP and the LP jacket.
