I’m hoping to find some time to share more about our upcoming concert which includes Stravinsky’s Petrushka. Stravinsky tended to change things after writing a work. In next week’s concert we are doing the revised version. The copy I had at home differed greatly.

Here is the first page of the music I have now received, where I play only English horn. There are only two oboes in this version:

The most interesting thing, though, are the changes of notation and even rhythms. I will share more later. Right now it’s just too late and my brain is too tired.
