Program Notes

This work is comprised of eight miniature masterpieces from among those selected for, and introduced by, Stravinsky in Pulcinella. Arranged as a suite for chamber winds, the music is presented in its original form, without Stravinsky's embellishments. The current edition does, however, include added harmony parts in several of the movements, most extensively in those attributed to Carlo Monza, whose keyboard works were conceived in only two parts.

Pulcinella is a one-act neoclassical ballet by Igor Stravinsky based on an 18th-century play Quartre Polichinelles semblables (Four identical Pulcinellas). Pulcinella is a stock character originating from commedia dell'arte.

The ballet premiered at the Paris Opera on 15 May 1920 under the baton of Ernest Ansermet. The dancer Léonide Massine created both the libretto and choreography, and Pablo Picasso designed the original costumes and sets. The ballet was commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev.
