A sort of choreographic cantata depicting Russian peasant nuptials, Les Noces ("The Wedding") was produced by Diaghilev in Paris in 1923. This outstandingly original work broke new musical ground with its compact, concise style, using unusual combinations of instruments with vocal accompaniment rather than a large orchestra. Reproduced from an authoritative score, this handsome, inexpensive volume incorporates new lists of contents and instrumentation; a glossary and preface (with illustrations); a Note on the Translation and Translation of the French Text.
