Francois-Xavier Roth & Albrecht Mayer

Berliner Philharmoniker; music by Stravinsky and Bach

Description Program Artists

The relationship between Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev was probably one of the most consequential in music history. For the director of the Ballets Russes the composer had written his celebrated and notorious ballets The Firebird and The Rite of Spring, which catapulted him to fame overnight. A musical earthquake emanated from Russia and shook the very foundations of what people were used to hearing. Between these two ballet scores in 1911, he wrote a completely different work which alternates between cheerful high spirits and deadly earnestness: Petrushka.
