Concerto in D, for string orchestra in D major "Basel Concerto". Amongst Stravinsky's compositions using variation form, the concerto is unusual for several reasons.
First, it employs this form as a finale. Second, the variation movement begins and ends in the same key which would be normal for most composers, but not Stravinsky, who only adheres to this practice in one other composition, the Sonata for Two Pianos. Third, the second variation literally repeats the melodic theme, thus functioning as a sort of internal recapitulation and thereby suggesting a fusing of variation with rondo form.
On November 4, , while still in the midst of composing the concerto, Stravinsky wrote a letter to Nadia Boulanger describing his progress as well as plans to make a recording with the Herman band in February This recording session was ultimately postponed but, at that time, Stravinsky foresaw its release on a rpm disc, with the first two movements on one side and the theme and variations on the other.
However, where else can one acquire the riches represented by these composer-directed or composer-supervised recordings? Think how we would have felt if the same Read more had been done for Rachmaninov or Schoenberg or Moeran or Martin? Only Britten has had anything similar with Copland coming a close-ish second. Not neglected are the twelve-tone works of his late years after coming into contact with that great Schoenberg advocate Robert Craft. In this context try Threni and the brief Pro Gesualdo piece.
Stravinsky as brilliant magister of the orchestra can be heard in the early fluttering rainbow-delicacy of The Firebird. Sample the helter-skelter flutter of The Firebird's Dance. The other two great ballets, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, are there in full and Petrushka and Firebird are also there in their familiar curtailed concert suite form. Speaking of which the composer's own CBS Petrushka is pressed forward to the point where the orchestra were being driven close to breaking point.
Yet they come through flags flying. OK these recordings are now between forty and fifty years old so the impact is not going to be all that it now can be.
That said, it remains viscerally vivid and exciting. The transition in Le Sacre from the thunderous stomp of Dance of the Earth tr. Les Noces with its raw affinity with Orff and its pre-echoes of Birtwistle is raucously statuesque. The playing throughout this set is often pretty astonishing. This certainly the case in the chiselled and tangy March from Soldier's Tale.
The recording is very good indeed: smooth and detailed. Bransle Gay recalls the much later Ariadne by Gordon Crosse. The Adagio from The Bluebird is full of smiling sunny light. It casts ogling eyes towards the grand balletic manner. A disc with three of the concert suites from Pulcinella, Petrushka and Firebird reminds us that the composer intended his music to make its way into concert programmes as well as to be danced. The grumping and shreiking nightmare of the Dance of the Peasant and the Bear from Petrushka is sharply characterised.
The Dance of the Coachmen has a satisfying guttural grunt and also exploits the music's inherent triumph tr. The brassy gruffness of the Vivo Pulcinella leaps out at the listener and stereo separation adds a gritty reality tr. The Nightingale. L'Histoire du soldat. Symphonies of Wind Instruments. Octet for wind instruments. Usually ships in 24 hours, unless stock becomes depleted.
