STRAVINSKY, I.: Pulcinella / Scherzo fantastique (Graham, Wilson, Opalach, Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

The ballet Pulcinella was first staged in Paris in 1920. Sergey Dyagilev had gathered around him some of the greatest artistic talents of the age: choreographer and dancer Léonide Massine, Pablo Picasso, who provided the astonishing designs, and Stravinsky. For the story of a travelling Italian theatre company, Stravinsky took music derived from Pergolesi and his contemporaries, and fashioned it into new and rich life, magical and piquant. The Scherzo fantastique, Op 3 is a lavish and brilliantly scored orchestral showpiece.
