About This Item

Stravinsky's Suite Italienne for Violin and Piano is based on his score for the 1920 ballet Pulcinella, which is, in turn based on themes by Pergolesi and other 18th century composers. The writing of Pulcinella is considered to mark the beginning of Stravinsky's neo-Classical period, in which he explored the works and styles of past compositional generations, infusing them with a modern understanding of rhythm and harmony. Thus, the Suite Italienne is a unique concert piece, having elements of Classical melodic material and a contemporary feel. Stravinsky made two transcriptions: one in 1925, and one, with the help of Samuel Dushkin, in 1934. Suited to advanced players, and ideal for recital settings. This version for violin and piano is the 1925 transcription, entitled simply "Suite," and is edited by Albert Spalding. Published by Boosey & Hawkes. Difficulty: A5
