Programme Note
Igor Stravinsky Rag-Time (1918)
Stravinsky’s RAGTIME, a concertino for cimbalom, 9 solo instruments and percussion, was composed in March 1918 and the instrumentation was finished just as the armistice was signed on 11 November. This was Stravinsky’s second piece entitled “Ragtime” (the first was one of the dances in SOLDIER’S TALE) and he called them both “essays in jazz portraiture”. He said of RAGTIME that he “borrowed jazz’s rhythmic style not as played but as written”.
