The charm of Pergolesi‘s melodies and the piquant flavor of Stravinsky‘s rewriting makes his Suite italienne one of his most enjoyable works and certainly the most popular of his works for violin and piano. – All Music Guide Igor Stravinsky called his discovery, and subsequent reworking, of melodies by the 18th-century composer Giovanni Pergolesi “the epiphany through […]

From the 2019 Heifetz Institute "Festival of Concerts," violinist @Julian Rhee introduces and then performs Igor Stravinsky's "Suite Italienne," (arranged by Samuel Dushkin), with pianist Miki Aoki（青木美樹）Pianist
Igor Stravinsky called his discovery, and subsequent reworking, of melodies by the 18th-century composer Giovanni Pergolesi “the epiphany through which the whole of my late work became possible.” Certainly he took his newfound style and ran with it, turning the resultant ballet Pulcinella into a purely orchestral piece, as well as suites for both cello and piano, and violin and piano…suites called “charming and witty to their core."
Captured in performance at a "Heifetz Stars of Tomorrow" concert in Francis Auditorium at Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, VA.
