Carreño Two movements from Serenade for String Orchestra
Mozart Bassoon Concerto
Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite
Natalia Luis-Bassa Conductor
Izabela Musial Bassoon

Both Teresa Carreño and Mozart were composing music before the age of six, child prodigies buzzing with ideas and talent. Carreño went on to gain fame as a virtuoso pianist, but also wrote music of deeply personal, poetic eloquence like her Serenade. A young Mozart, meanwhile, mixes songlike melodies with whimsical chortles in his Bassoon Concerto.

For Stravinsky, it was dance that propelled his imagination. Movement drives every rhythm of Pulcinella, its tale of romance, peril and comedic revenge delving into music’s back-catalogue and coming out brimming with life.
