About Igor’s Dance
Igor’s Dance is a virtuosic, molto allegro parody of the Ballerina’s Dance from Igor Stravinsky’s Petrouchka, with the quintet parts including some isolated musical elements, such as single rhythmic figures or motives from some of Stravinsky’s early 20th century orchestral works.
