STRAVINSKY: Suite from "Pulcinella"
Stravinsky’s “Pulcinella” could be described as “back to the future” music, with a score written in 1700, but re-imagined in 1920.
- Challenged by Serge Diaghilev to revisit Pergolesi’s works and turn them into a ballet, Stravinsky added intricate, modern harmonies and altered rhythms to the music while retaining the 18th-century melodic charm of the original work.
- The result is a gloriously lyrical and appealing work, both classic and modern at the same time, that delights the ear from start to finish.
This performance will be available for FREE streaming through April 16.
