Technically it embraces two divergent attitudes: faithful adherence to the melody of the theme, unlimited freedom in handling the other thematic elements. Stravinsky's variation sets are invariably movements in larger works. Violin has a wistful and pastoral character, using a motif Stravinsky heard as he dreamt of a young gypsy sitting by the road and playing the violin for her child. The first of the Tale’s two parts relies on narration – of the devil, disguised as a butterfly collector, bartering with the Soldier for his violin in return for a book which.

    Overview of Literature on Stravinsky's Twelve-Tone Music. Analytical approaches to Stravinsky's twelve-tone music generally can be divided into four categories. The first category involves the description and explanation of the twelve-tone rows, hexachords, and verticals in . Based on a theme also quoted in The Firebird, it was Stravinsky’s last completed work; but it is included, too, on Mikhail Pletnev’s well played but curiously bloodless collection. Pletnev conducts the familiar suite from The Firebird, but the main interest is the work that Stravinsky defined as his Op. 1: the E flat Symphony.4/5.

    Stravinsky referred to this recurring introduction as the "ribbons of scales" variation (Stravinsky and Craft , 71). The second, fourth, fifth, and seventh variations assume the characters of a march, a waltz, a can-can, and a solemn fugue, respectively (Simms , ). The fugato is almost uniformly written in 5 8 time (White , Arbitrary Constraints. My freedom thus consists in my moving about within the narrow frame that I have assigned to myself for each one of my undertakings. I shall go even further: my freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I surround myself with obstacles.
