Peças Infantis | 20 Dez
A concert where fantasy reigns around the music of two great masters of the 20th century. It seems almost impossible that Stravinsky’s Pulcinella was written 100 years ago, and what’s more, based on music three times older, from the 18th century. In this key work of neoclassicism, the atmosphere is always humorous and fun, intertwined with dance moves, hence its name, after a character from the Italian commedia dell'arte. Children's imaginary world is revisited by Maurice Ravel in Ma Mère l’Oye, a piece written in 1908 and dedicated to the children of a couple he was friends with. Originally written for four-hands piano to “evoke the poetry of childhood” from children's tales, it is presented in this programme in the orchestral version that the composer created later on, bringing us the fantastic colouring of the worlds of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Tom Thumb and other nooks of this magical place we all keep in our memories.
