About the Programme

This evening is actually a continuation of a September 2016 concert. There were on the programme Béla Bartók’s other musical dance-play, The Miraculous Mandarin and one of the most important compositions of Stravinsky's neo-classical period, the opera Oedipus Rex. This time, from Stravinsky, you can hear again one piece of the said creative period, the Pulcinella from 1920, which is an odd mixture of ballet and oratorio. The composer wrote this piece based the ideas of his permanent co-worker and commissioner, the leader of the Russian Ballet, Sergei Diaghilev, reworking the 18th century music of Giovanni Pergolesi. Bartók wrote few years earlier, in the middle of 2010s his first major musical pantomime, the The Wooden Prince, which tells the story of a strange love triangle between the Princess, the Prince and his wooden counterpart. In the music of the piece based on a libretto by Béla Balázs, the Wagnerian romanticism, the Hungarian folk-music and Bartók’s unmistakable modernist voice are mixed with each other.
