Russia in the Round

GLINKA Grand Sextet in E flat
STRAVINSKY Soldier’s Tale Suite 
TCHAIKOVSKY String Sextet in D minor Op.70 Souvenir de Florence

Mikhail Glinka’s Grand Sextet, written in Milan and inspired by the operas of Bellini and Donizetti, sparkles and delights, while Tchaikovsky’s graceful String Sextet was composed following a visit to Florence and bears a glorious Italian/Russian hybrid character.

 In between, Stravinsky conjures a rich tapestry of music in his Russian parable of a soldier selling his soul - and his violin - for money. Maybe the Devil does get all the best tunes!

“All music in Russia stems from Glinka.” Igor Stravinsky
