Stravinsky thought his Symphony in C was 'unmysterious and so easy to hear on every level' – this is his nod to Haydn and Beethoven. But the ballet Pulcinella is where neoclassicism began: recomposing music by Pergolesi and others to show the 18th century as viewed through modern eyes.
Following the success of his Morgentanz in 2008, Andrew Howes returns to the Discovery Program with music for the voice.
Discover Stravinsky then join us for his infamous Rite of Spring in October. And there’s more Stravinsky earlier in the year when we play Dumbarton Oaks (April), Symphonies of Wind Instruments (May) and the Concerto in D for strings (July).
