STRAVINSKY PETRUSHKA 180g LP
180 Gram Vinyl! TAS Audiophile Demo Disc!
L'Orchestre De La Suisse Romande. Ernest Ansermet (conductor). 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. This performance of Stravinsky's Petrushka was recorded at
Victoria Hall in Geneva in the fall of 1957.
