From the first of them and following the order of the concert, Symphony No. 38 in D major, KV will be performed. 504 whose premiere took place at the Prague Opera House in 1878. This period marks a before and after in Mozart 's compositional style, as Haydn's influence and inspiration begins to fade, giving rise to the consolidation of one of his own. , which will serve as a model that Beethoven will later follow. However, from the point of view of the Symphony, the fact of omitting the clarinets from the instrumentation or dispensing with the minuet by reducing the number of movements to three makes this work not a reference in the evolution of this type of musical composition. .
Subsequently, the Pulcinella Ballet Suite will be performed by the orchestra in the second part of the concert. Stravinsky composed the ballet in 1920, premiering it that same year at the Paris Opera Theater under the direction of Ernest Ansermet. The version of the suite, which is the one we will hear, dates from 1922, and was later revised in 1947. It includes eight of the twenty numbers that make up the original ballet, replacing the solo singers with instruments. The fact that Serge Diaghilev, impresario of the Russian Ballets, proposed to Stravinsky that he base the ballet on Pergolesi's music made the composer investigate and immerse himself in all the previous music, thus a fundamental stage in his work was born. style, which will influence all subsequent composers, giving rise to the birth of Neoclassicism.
