Music made for Maine: it was on a quiet summer’s day in 1955, in the seaside town of Blue Hill north of Bowdoin, that Barber decided to compose his Summer Music for wind quintet. The Rite of Spring, of course, has a more tumultuous history: and it was in this four-hands arrangement – brought to life this evening by Soyeon Kate Lee and Ran Dank – that Stravinsky first read through the work in 1912, with none other than Claude Debussy as his duet partner.
