Pulcinella (40')

MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV – CONDUCTOR / HARPSICHORD
CLAIRE BOOTH – SOPRANO
ANDREW STAPLES – TENOR
RODERICK WILLIAMS – BARITONE

Maxim Emelyanychev showcases his talents as both conductor and keyboard player in three brilliant works taking very modern views on music of the past.

Prokofiev imagined what Haydn might write if he were alive in the 20th century in his brief but utterly charming Classical Symphony, while Stravinsky threw all his own unmistakable rhythms and piquant harmonies at Pergolesi (or so he thought) in his captivating Pulcinella, as comic as it is touching.

In between, Poulenc melds the archaic and the anarchic in his flamboyant Suite Française, reimagining music from 16th-century France for cosmopolitan Paris in the 1930s.
