Igor Stravinsky - Elegy for Solo Viola (1944)
Igor Stravinsky - Elegy for Solo Viola (1944) Igor Stravinsky, Elegy for solo viola (1944) Played flawlessly by Miles Hoffman. (His channel is MilesHoffmanViola) This short 5-minute work remains to be Stravinsky's only contribution to viola literature. It has been said that world renowned violist William Primrose once proposed commissioning a viola concerto from Stravinsky, but Stravinsky was not interested in the project, so he went to Bartok instead who did agree to the offer. The Elegy was commissioned by Germain Prevost to honor the memory of Alphonse Onnou (1893-1940). Prevost, who was an extremely sentimental man, not only commissioned Stravinsky for this work, but also his friend Darius Milhaud, who wrote three works for viola and piano in memory of Onnou as well. Undoubtedly in the war torn year of 1944, in which this work was composed, there were many victims worthy of this somber token of remembrance. Thank you for 45000 views!
Stravinsky - "No Word From Tom" (Felicity Lott)
Stravinsky - "No Word From Tom" (Felicity Lott) Igor Stravinsky - The Rake's Progress - "No Word From Tom" Act 1 - Recitative: No Word From Tom (Anne) - Aria - Quietly, Night (Anne) - Recitative: My Father Can I Desert Him (Anne) - Cabaletta - I Go, I Go To Him (Anne) conducted by Bernard Haitink, from 1975 Sets and costumes designed by David Hockney. Roger Brunyate writes: For the text, Stravinsky turned to the expatriate English poet Wystan Hugh Auden, who in turn brought in his own collaborator Chester Kallman. It was an inspired choice. As distinct from the metrical experiments of his contemporaries Eliot and Pound, Auden had always had a taste for the closed forms of earlier verse, and he adopted the Augustan style of the eighteenth century as to the manner born. Although writing in the mid-twentieth century, Auden and Kallman (whose styles are virtually impossible to tell apart) made no concessions to the modern era; their verse has the precision of Pope, whose elegance and wit they polished with the clarity of stylistic hindsight. Although the subject and text of The Rake's Progress inhabit the eighteenth century, Stravinsky's music spans both eras; it is like a collage of classical motifs fragmented and reassembled in the manner of our own time. Indeed Stravinsky ranged even more widely in his sources. His primary inspiration is probably Mozart, specifically the Mozart of Così fan Tutte, which he had recently seen in a collegiate performance in California. But his stylistic grab-bag is deep enough to contain ...
Stravinsky Petrouchka (1/4)
Stravinsky Petrouchka (1/4) Part 1: Igor Stravinsky: Petrouchka, Ballet in Four Parts -- Even the most stubborn Stravinsky-hater, just like me, will find it hard to resist Petrouchka. Comedy rarely found in too many ballets are found plenty here, and the primal music and the even-more-primal Petrouchka will make you roar with laughter. Or maybe its just me. Its not the best production, but since there was none on Youtube and personally, I find actually seeing the ballet much enjoyable than just listening to the music. The plot adds another deep layer of fun in it. As I said, there should be better ones, but hopefully you should be able to enjoy it at least. PS Make sure you pay attention to the Petrouchka chord. Similar elements can be found that is also found in Wagners operas. Might as well call this chord a sort of a leitmotif.
Stravinsky conducts "Sacre du Printemps" - 1929 - part 4
Stravinsky conducts "Sacre du Printemps" - 1929 - part 4 Stravinsky conducts "Sacre du Printemps" - 1929 - part 4 Second part : Le Sacrifice ( The Exalted Sacrifice ) - Action rituelle des ancêtres ( ritual action of the ancestors ) - Dance sacrale - l'élue ( sacrificial dance (the chosen one)) - Dance sacrale - fin This is a legendary recording of Stravinsky conducting "The rite of spring" with the "Orchestre Symfonique de Paris" . It could be the premiere recording, but I'm not sure, as there's also the Pierre Monteux recording of the same year. (Pierre Monteux having conducted the premiere performance) The Rite of Spring was a ballet, created in 1913, with a choreography by Vaslav Nijisky, set and costume designs by Nicholas Roerich, and Stravinsky as composer. The premiere performance in Paris caused a total scandal and riot, as audiences at that time, being used to the classical ballet were shocked by the primitive, chaotic nature of the performance and composition. Stravinsky clarified the subject when he wrote in 1910 : "... there arose a picture of a sacred pagan ritual: the wise elders are seated in a circle and are observing the dance before death of the girl whom they are offering as a sacrifice to the god of Spring in order to gain his benevolence." Leonard Bernstein once said about a passage :"That page is sixty years old, but it's never been topped for sophisticated handling of primitive rhythms..." It's remarkable how clear the different instruments come out in this recording, which is amazing considering the ...
