L’Orchestre De La Suisse Romande

Stravinsky initially conceived the music for Petrushka as a kind of burlesque combat between the piano and orchestra. The piano was to play the role of the puppet that exasperated the orchestra with its diabolical sequences. The accompanying orchestra was to retaliate in force leading finally to a climax in which the puppet collapses. The music that ultimately emerged elaborated a story of puppets that were actually more human than their puppetmaster ever imagined. Although the primitive rhythms and kaleidoscopic colors initially gave the conductor and ballet troupe difficulty, the work was premiered June 13, 1911.
