Format: Paperback
After a great thinking about the score "Rite of spring" by Stravinsky, I decided to buy it.
In my country (Portugal), it's very expensive to buy this kind of products so I also decided to buy it online.
I made the purchase at Amazon but, for some reason, the book got late and I had to contact the seller for further informations.
This made me a bit nervous and unhappy because it had passed a few days after the delivery.
On the other side, the "Spinetinglers" have gave me the best treatment a client should have.
I was objectively walked through the process of conversation and re-ordering.
Then, I was able to choose a possibility for my initial order and, at last, receive a new book at home. Without a scratch!

Thank you so much for your sevices, "Spinetinglers". You've just made a client!

Best regards,

Carlos Filipe Cruz

Probably the greatest musical composition of all times 19 April 2000
By Martin Herraiz - Published on
Format: Paperback
For anyone who loves music in general as much as I do, Stravinsky's Rite Of Spring can be, to say the least, a shockingly intense listening experience, full of strangely dissonant polytonal simultaneities, overwhelming rhythmic dephasing, and colorful details and timbristic effects that take maximum advantage of what a great symphony orchestra has to offer. This edition of the translated original score allows you a better understanding of this revolutionary musical monsterpiece, with visual complement to what your ears couldn't even consider figuring out. Sometimes it's simpler than you would imagine; sometimes it's much, much more complex. This work taught me a great deal about music composition & arranging, and the book also allowed me to write a reduction of the "Spring Rounds" for a 7-piece band.

Excellent book 27 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Rite of Spring is perhaps the best known of Stravinsky`s ballet works together with The firebird and Petrushka. And in my opinion, it is the most modern, fascinating and thrilling of the three pieces, as well as a definitive reference for most of 20th century music. When you hear it, you can realize of how Stravinsky masters orchestration, colours and atmospheres in an incredible way. And with this score, very clear and easy readable, you can appreciate its greatness much better. Definitely recommended, and very worth the price.

Simply put - a great score 29 May 2008
By Matthew Gonzales - Published on
Format: Paperback
Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" is excellent, but even if it weren't, this score would still be wonderful.

Major positive points:
1) The score stays open and flat on a table or conductor's stand. Dover seems to take great care with this in their full scores, and it really makes score reading/studying much simpler.

2) The paper is thin enough to keep the size of the score small, but it's thick enough that markings/highlighting don't bleed through, which is wonderful.

3) Every system has either instrument names or understandable abbreviations.


5) The music is dark and easy to read. There are no faded or missing barlines, which is a problem I seem to encounter with Kalmus and Lucks scores, as well as Dover miniature editions.

6) Attractive layout and engraving. This doesn't just look like a Finale print, unlike some other new scores.

I've always been proved with Dover's orchestral scores, and this is no exception. I worked from the Boosey's score last semester, and I definitely prefer this one.

Well Worth The Money! 16 Jan 2006
By Sigoriev - Published on
Format: Paperback
From Jordan in Minnesota

In 1998 I bought the original score of Le Sacre du Printemps from Kalmus for 65.00 dollars!! Although the Kalmus version in cited from numerous musicians and stravinsky himself, this version of dovers is well worth the 10 dollars!! It is pretty much the same as Kalmus' but it has no chief editor, and since its a reprint it will have the same concept as the Kalmus score, only it is 55.00 dollars cheaper. If anyone wants the 4 extra pages of the kalmus version that compares the scores, I would be happy to copy it and send them, as long as people realize that the Kalmus version as of January 16 2006 is almost 100.00. So stick with this dover version it will definately save you the money!!

I actually bought The Rite of Spring for me boyfriend, who is a musician. He loved it! Here in Brazil music sheets like this are extremely rare and expensive, so it sure was the perfect gift. :)
