Program Notes

Pastorale is a song without words written by Igor Stravinsky in 1907. Stravinsky composed the piece at his family's estate in Ustilug, Ukraine, while under the supervision of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and dedicated it to Rimsky-Korsakov's daughter Nadia.

The piece was originally scored for soprano and piano, but Stravinsky transcribed it several times over the years for various ensembles.

Leopold Stokowski arranged the piece for five soloists (violin, oboe, English horn, clarinet and bassoon) and strings, making its first recording with his Philadelphia players in 1934.
