Suite for orchestra (1945) arranged for chamber orchestra by Paul Leonard Schäffer (2018)


  • Instrumentation: chamber orchestra

Description

Writing music to heighten dramatic situations, such as battle and crisis, was a speciality of Igor Stravinsky. In his ballet, The Firebird, premiered in 1910, the 27 year old composer surpassed many of today’s film composers by depicting a breathtaking battle between good and evil. With music written for large orchestra, this is carefully thought out and precisely choreographed battle music that could not be more exciting!
