Stravinsky: Les Noces

Descripción

Scored for the original combination of four pianos, percussion, chorus and solo voices, the Russian composer gave it the descriptive title Choreographed Scenes with Music and Voices and dedicated it to entrepreneur Sergei Diaghilev.

Although it was initially intended to serve as a ballet score about a peasant wedding of the 19th century, the orchestral version is usually performed.

In this occasion, it will be performed in French. It strikes a masterly balance between a loving respect for tradition (of both the folklore of his native country and the romantic legacy of the West) and innovation. Stravinsky stated that he delighted in its “perfectly homogeneous, perfectly impersonal and perfectly mechanical” sound.
