About

An unusual aspect of Stravinsky emerges from these four works. Even this final version of Pulcinella has a neoclassical feel. His Violin Concerto marked a return to Bach, played here sublimely by David Oistrakh. There follows Stravinsky himself conducting Jeu de Cartes, gleefully making the joker come across as a real prankster. Finally, a 1963 rendering of his Mouvements manages to demystify Webern-style serialism in a mere ten minutes.
