Notes & Reviews:

Commissioned by George Balanchine, 'Jeu de cartes' is a prime example of melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic ideas emerging helter-skelter from Stravinsky’s imagination. Unlike his other ballets, it contains no slow music and no lovers' 'pas-de-deux adagio'. 'Danses concertantes' was the first large-scale piece composed entirely in what was to be Stravinsky’s Hollywood home for the next 24 years. First performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Robert Craft, 'Variations' are the densest music Stravinsky ever wrote, yet the ingenious rhythmic structures allow every note to be heard.
