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 ...
Igor Stravinsky - "Preludium For Jazz Band"
Igor Stravinsky - "Preludium For Jazz Band" Something of an oddity in the composer's cannon, the Preludium was written between 1936-37 and, aside from the "Ebony Concerto", is the only piece Stravinsky wrote for a band. At this point he had abandoned most of the Russian folk influence that garnishes his earliest period, and eschewed orchestras in favour of smaller ensembles (usually wind). With his penchant for off-beat rhythms and lyricism, it's easy to see why Stravinsky may have been drawn to jazz. Django Reindhardt had popularized Gypsy Jazz only a few years before. Nontheless, this composition is entirely in Stravinsky's own style. The portrait, of course, is courteosy of the hand of Pablo Picasso.
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 ...

Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress (La Monnaie)
Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress (La Monnaie) Stravinsky's masterwork The Rake's Progress, created for La Fenice in Venice in 1951, is based on a libretto by WH Auden and Chester Kallman, inspired by a series of 18th century prints by William Hogarth. This amazing production from La Monnaie--De Munt 'jazzifies' the setting by replacing Hogarth's sin city, London, with 1950s Las Vegas, turning it into a glittering, cinematic gallery of tableaux vivants inspired by the early days of television. Staged by one of the most visionary theatre directors of our age, the Québécois Robert Lepage, the neo-classical morality tale truly becomes a grand spectacle. Lepage's visual imagination works its magic superbly, while Kazushi Ono's energetic musical direction drives the sparkling ensemble to exhilarating heights. Recorded in High Definition and true surround sound. Available from Opus Arte on DVD & Blu-ray www.opusarte.com Please 'Like' us at www.facebook.com
