Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest o.l.v. Andris Nelsons Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Stravinsky: Petroesjka / Petrouchka / Petrushka
Opgenomen: 16 november 2011, Concertgebouw Amsterdam
Petrouchka or Petrushka (French: Pétrouchka) is a ballet with music by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, composed in 1910–11 and revised in 1947.
Petrushka is a story of a Russian traditional puppet, Petrushka, who is made of straw and with a bag of sawdust as his body, but who comes to life and develops emotions.
According to Andrew Wachtel, Petrushka is a work that fuses music, ballet, choreography and history in perfect balance. It evokes Richard Wagner's Gesamtkunstwerk (total artwork), but with a Russian approach.[
