Stravinsky’s Les Noces

1919 version

Friday 9 June 2023 - 10 pm - Vienna Musikverein

Of all Stravinsky’s works, Les Noces has undergone the most transformations. The composer reworked the orchestration for nearly ten years and produced three versions. It is the little-known 1919 version which is performed here by the Ensemble Aedes and Les Siècles, directed by Mathieu Romano.
Reputedly the composer’s favourite version, it is scored for harmonium, two cimbaloms, pianola, chorus and four soloists, and is considered the best reflection of the prosody and the work’s folk spirit.
