Igor Stravinsky was a master of evocative composition, and these three works performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski showcase his incredible versatility of style. The antics of a puppet endowed with life are the central focus of Stravinsky’s colourful large-scale ballet score Petrushka. Nine years after its composition, the death of Claude Debussy inspired Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments, channelling the composer’s raw emotion in its memorial chorale that brings the work to a solemn end. Classical elegance and restraint are brought into focus in the ballet Orpheus.
