Igor Stravinsky took an eclectic approach in these ballet scores: reinventing Baroque pieces by Pergolesi for Pulcinella; concocting Le Baiser de la fée, based on Hans Christian Andersen, from piano and vocal music by Tchaikovsky, and adopting a rigorous, neo-Classical voice for Perséphone. His Symphony in Three Movements was choreographed by George Balanchine in 1972, the year after the composer’s death.

Album Summary:

  • Le Baiser de la fée (The Fairy's Kiss), ballet in 4 scenes for orchestra
  • Perséphone, melodrama for tenor, female narrator, chorus, children's chorus, & orchestra
