If it seems impossible, you can bet an artist will attempt it. Sometimes the great ones achieve it. In the summer of 1788, in just under one month, Mozart composed his final symphony, the "Jupiter": a grand summation of 18th century symphonic music which
at the same time contains his most spectacular contrapuntal writing. And in 1911, the 29 year-old Stravinsky gave the world his ballet "Petrushka". Here was an entirely new kind of music, in which he uses the orchestra to create a hero both mechanical and alive. Stravinsky achieved an achingly human depiction that startles us even today. Join the Purchase Symphony Orchestra and Music Director, Michael Adelson as we explore these two sharply contrasting impossible masterworks.
