Strozzi, Auerbach & Stravinsky

Music by Stravinsky, Strozzi and Auerbach – with the pianist Darya Tchaikovsky and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s own Hanna Dahlkvist on cello.

Barbara Strozzi was one of Italy’s most significant composers in the seventeenth century, and a contemporary of Monteverdi. She was called “La virtuosissima cantatrice” – the masterful singer – and she was among Venice’s cultural elite of philosophers, writers and poets. Her music is exquisitely emotional and beautiful. Lagrime mie, My Tears, was originally a song from the collection Diporti di Euterpe.

The programme also features music by composer and pianist Lera Auerbach, famous for her neo-Romantic musical language. She is originally from the region around the Ural Mountains in Russia, but for many years she has been active in the US where she studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. We hear a selection from her meditative, melodic and rhythmically explosive 24 Preludes for Cello and Piano.

Stravinsky’s Italian suite consists of his own arrangement of movements from the Neoclassical ballet Pulcinella. He found the melodies among works by lesser-known eighteenth-century Venetian composers.

The award-winning pianist Darya Tchaikovsky, born in Minsk, Belarus, but now a resident of Stockholm, performing with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s own Hanna Dahlkvist on cello.
