I heard Hamelin and Andsnes play a four-hand arrangement but for two pianos. It was great.

Listening to it played properly could be divine.
Attempting to play it as mortals might result in wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Some say the near-riot conditions which accompanied the premiere were staged, and the fate of the poor young lady who danced herself to death onstage, in her role as a sacrificial virgin, did not really bother anyone in the audience, at least, not that much. After all, she took her curtain calls like everyone else--- not actually dead, at all. Besides, it was Paris, 1913, and they appreciated the music. (I have a theory that the performance came a little on the late side to be called 'Anything, Spring,' since it opened on May 29, Danny Elfman's birthday.)

Nijinsky, the choreographer; Sergei Diaghilev, director of the Ballets Russes; and Stravinsky, the composer enjoyed a late supper together afterward, as if nothing untoward had happened at all.
After all, having a commotion in response to an opening night is not really a problem for a production. It's when an opening goes unnoticed that the worries come.

But, it closed after eight performances, and was not revived again until 1924, in London, with choreography by someone else. In the 1980s, the Joffrey Ballet staged what they said was a reconstructed version of the original ballet. No riots. It has fared better over the years as an experimental vehicle for seasoned creators of ballets.

Do you suppose the four-hands-two-pianos version was intended for rehearsals?
