The origin of Pelrushka was a concert piece for piano and orchestra, in which the piano was intended to represent a I puppet, suddenly endowed with life, exasperating the orchestra with diabolical cascades of arpeggi, and the orchestra replying with. menacing fanfares.' But when Diaghilev heard Stravinsky play over some of the music he at once saw its possibilities as the basis of a ballet. The completed work was first performed in Paris in 1911, when Nijinsky appeared as Petrushka, and Karsavina as the Ballerina. A few years ago Stravinsky produced a new version of the score, with the aim of securing greater clarity in the texture; and it is this version that will be played tonight. Harold Rutland
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
