The pairing of Igor Stravinsky's ballets Petrushka (1911) and Jeu de cartes (1937) may afford insights into his development of neoclassical style, which was anticipated in the former work and stated fully in the latter. This recording by Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra marks the first time that they have recorded Petrushka, in its original version, though Gergiev had recorded Stravinsky's other great ballets, L'Oiseau de feu and Le Sacre du printemps, previously for Phillips. This oversight may be surprising, considering the great popularity of Petrushka and the practice of most labels to release recordings of all three early ballets together.
The Mariinsky Label presents Valery Gergiev's first recording of Stravinsky's iconic Petrushka score, paired with one of the composer's hidden gems, the witty Jeu de cartes. Stravinsky's score to Petrushka is one of his most celebrated works and a product of his famous collaboration with Diaghilev that also produced The Firebird and Rite of Spring. Presented here in the composer s original 1911 version, it tells the story of the loves and jealousies of three puppets who are brought to life during the 1830 Shrovetide Fair in Saint Petersburg.

The Mariinsky Label presents Valery Gergiev’s first recording of Stravinsky’s iconic Petrushka score, paired with one of the composer’s hidden gems, the witty Jeu de cartes. Stravinsky’s score to Petrushka is one of his most celebrated works and a product of his famous collaboration with Diaghilev that also produced The Firebird and Rite of Spring. A ballet in ‘three deals’, 1937’s Jeu de cartes stems from Stravinsky’s life-long enthusiasm for cards; poker in particular. A commission by Lincoln Kirstein and his newly formed American Ballet Company, it was composed during Stravinsky’s neoclassical period. The whimsical music focuses on the deceitful Joker who thinks himself unbeatable, thanks to a chameleon-like ability to become any card. During the work the Joker wages battle with other hands, but after two victorious rounds and the appearance of a third, he is vanquished by a Royal Flush of Hearts.

The ballet is preceded by Stravinsky's Symphonies of Wind Instruments. In the summer of 1910 - just months after The Firebird' s incredible success - Stravinsky was already energetically back at work, this time on a concert piece for piano and orchestra inspired by Petrushka, the well-known character of Russian folk puppet theater.
