the track is 222 seconds long. or 3 minutes and 42 seconds.
if it takes that long to play, then you are playing it at the right speed.
Also, I should mention that what you have downloaded is NOT
Stravinsky's "Right of Spring" or even "Rite of Spring". It is a piece by John Oswald which is made out of samples of the Stravinsky
piece. Our apologies if this disappoints you.
