Igor Stravinsky/Boris Kochno
Mavra is a comedy based on a poem by Pushkin. The typically Russian elaborations, addressing with devotion the most trivial of subjects is raised to the level of "art". In this 23 minute comedy Igor Stravinsky sketches a brilliant musical tale.
The work is a joy, lovely melodic curves alternating with stirring wind fragments typical of Stravinsky.
Stravinsky said: "Justice is done to this little work in a small theater with a devoted audience."
