Construction: This work is an instrumental suite made up of 4 pieces with titles and Roman numerals, which correspond with the numbering of the works in the original Piano Suite, and which each has individual orchestrations. – The first three pieces of the Orchestral Suite correspond to the third piano series in order, while the fourth piece corresponds to the final piece of the fifth series. All four orchestral movements bear the same metronome markings as their originals, but gain dynamics and technical accidentals specific to the instruments, which were previously unnecessary and unachievable. The first and fourth movements (‘March’ and ‘Galop’) are formally identical to their originals, but in the second and third movements (‘Waltz’ and ‘Polka’) there are amendments made. The Waltz is transposed up a tone from C to D while playing and formal indications such as leggierissimo and TRIO were removed; in the Trio section, there are three alternations of Rubato and Tempo which have been added. The changes in the Waltz from the original are extensions and concern a four-bar introduction in the clarinet (figure 41 – figure 11) which is taken from the first two bars of the clarinet part ( 41+ 11 = clarinet part 1 1; 31+ 21 = clarinet part 1 2), as well as the insertion of two bars from the clarinet introduction ( 4/31) between bars 6 and 7 of the original, or bars 11 and 12 of the orchestral version. The orchestral movement is therefore 12 bars longer than the original (96 bars). As a result of the new introduction, the Da Capo marking had to be changed to a Da Segno. The ‘Polka’ also gains an almost fully orchestrated prelude of 3 bars, the function of which is in essence non-melodic rhythmic scansion. The 7 bars of figure 4 (= bars 28-34 in the bar numbering of the score) are inserted between bars 24 and 25 of the original and correspond compositionally with the 7 following bars (figure 5 without the final bar = bars 35-41 in the bar numbering of the score = bar 25-31 of the original) but less densely orchestrated. The orchestral movement therefore becomes 10 bars longer than the original (40 bars).

Style: The style reflects the grotesque originals ( Trois Pièces Facilesand ‚Galop’ from Cinq Pièces Faciles). The instrumentation, which is different from piece to piece, enhances the caricature hallmarks of the originals.

Dedication: While both piano sets have dedicatees which were also printed in the series with three pieces (the dedication of the series with five pieces to Madame Errazuriz was not printed), neither of the two Orchestral Suites have a dedicatee. Strawinsky authorized a dedicational programme note for a performance in Biarritz on 25th August 1932, according to which both Suites are dedicated to Frau Errazuriz.

Duration: about 1' 12" (Marche), 2' 04" (Valse), 1' 00" (Polka), 1' 43" (Galop).

Date of origin: between 1915 and 1921; the first two pieces at the end of 1915, the last two in the early part of 1921.

First performance: The première took place in 1921, probably in Le Théâtre de la Chauve-Souris à Moscouin Paris, the exact date is still not known; the first performance for which there is proof of its existence was conducted by Eugene Goossens on 16th June 1922 in the Queen’s Hall in London; the first performance of both Suites together was conducted by Igor Strawinsky under the title ‘Huit pièces infantines’ on 2nd Marche 1926 in Haarlem.

Remarks: Strawinsky worked almost simultaneously on the orchestration with the piano version. Nothing more detailed is known apart from the fact that the estate contains an orchestration of the ‘Marche’ for twelve solo instruments dated 10th-23rd March 1915. The Second Suite was in any case completed in 1921 because in the early part of this year, a Parisian Music Hall approached Strawinsky with the request that he produce music for a sketch. That was the outward cause for why he took up the grotesque series of four-hand pieces again and completed the orchestration that had always been planned. It can be seen from the dating however that the ‘Marche’ was orchestrated on 22nd September 1920, but not the ‘Galop’. Furthermore, Strawinsky was also working on an orchestration and the commission came, dated in the early part of 1921, as is often the case with Strawinsky, according to his own wishes. The works were used in the Parisian Music Hall, whether as single pieces or as a Suite is unknown. It is known from Strawinsky’s memoirs that he was later very annoyed by the event because his pieces were only played correctly at the outset. When he saw the sketch a month later, he declared that not much of his music was left. Everything had been destroyed, some instruments were missing or had been replaced by others. The disgusted Strawinsky learnt his lesson and explained that one should never give good work to such institutions because they would, due to the performance or actors, be ‘inevitably mutilated’. The ‘Music-Hall’, according to Taruskin, was a Russian Varieté Theatre which opened in 1920, Le Théâtre de la Chauve-Sourisà Moscou, in which there was a Russian pre-War atmosphere for the home-sick Russians, and with which Strawinsky frequented because he had temporarily fallen in love with the leading lady. Here he got to know Vera Soudeikina, his later wife. The date 2nd March 1926 in Haarlem was the performance of both Suites one after the other as a unit, in the form that Strawinsky had conceived them.

Versions: The First Suite, with the number 2, was published by 24th October 1925 at the latest by J. & W. Chester in London as a conducting score without a number. The performing material was available to hire. The costly pocket-score edition, which appeared in the following year, this time with numbering, was a licence for the Vienna Philharmonic publishers, who took them into their series of Philharmonia pocket scores. The subsequent edition (bound in a fastener) differs from the (thread-bound) original edition by a copyright marking given on the inside title page (1926 instead of 1921), and the lack of an inside-title border and an altered statement of production marked at the end on p.28, and especially the numbering as Suite Nr. 2, stated in the inner title (not in the outside title) and main title. Apart from this, the photograph appears more two-dimensional, Apart from this, the size of the photo in the layout has been slightly altered (9.5 x 12.8 instead of 9.8 x 12.9; the distance between the head and the upper limit of the photo is 1.0 instead of 0.7; difference between the nose and the right edge of the photo is 2.0 instead of 1.8). The portrait, which was evidently either retouched or replaced by another similar picture from the series, appears narrower (the distance diagonally from the end of the nose to the back of the head is 6.8 instead of 7.5) and furthermore is printed in higher definition, certainly in the patterned pieces. The Philharmonia editions were not allowed to be sold in the kingdom of the English crown. Presumably as a result of this, London received no contributory copy. They sold the Chester edition, which was made with the printing plates from Vienna and which was sold by Schott in Germany under the edition number 3470. In this edition, the inner pages, 2 and 3, of the cover were replaced with empty pages and the third page of advertising on the back page of the cover was replaced by Chester’s advertising. The Russian illegal print run of 1967 brought both suites together in one volume but the wrong way round, starting with the end suite Nr.2 followed by the beginning suite Nr.1, thus demonstrating their lack of understanding of the interrelation. – The Austrian printing of the score remained also the basis for the edition by the publishing house Wilhelm Hansen, Copenhagen in 1965 (28 pages, 13 x 18.2 (8°); plate number. J. W. C. 51a). Kalmus in New York subsequently printed both versions. The Ericson version for Concert Band of 1968 is an orchestral transcription of the piano pieces and does not adopt anything from Strawinsky’s orchestral version. The Library of the United States Army Band in Fort Meyer in Virginia owns a band arrangement of three pieces (March, Andante and Galop), compiled from the two original Suites to form the separate A Stravinsky Suite, (Conducting score 28 pages 23 x 30.5 (4°) without plate number: signature 3949). The arrangement, which has a performance duration of approximately four and a half minutes, was made by Frank Erickson from Spokane in Washington State and is written for 63 instrumentalists (Wind instruments with additional bass strings). Erickson had at this time already written more than 200 compositions and more than 50 band arrangements, and was regarded as a specialist in this area. His arrangement was published in 1968 by Chappell & Co. in New York under copyright and with a strict performance-rights reservation, and could only be sold in the United States. There seemed to be the suspicion there an edition would be produced that would be illegal according to European understanding of performance rights, and which would be unauthorised by Strawinsky in this fragmented version. Chappell sold the Suite in the form of a set of parts with a conducting score ($16.50), as the conducting score alone ($3.00) and for $1.50 as a simplified piano-conducting score (Condensed Score = piano reduction with markings describing the instrumentation; a copy can be found under the signature 1683-R in the library of the United States Marine Band in Washington), and any single part could also be provided for a price of 60 Cents. There is up to the present day no copy of this Suite in the European libraries that has been traced. Erickson referred to both the piano and orchestral versions of the original. Since he amalgamated his arrangement from two suites, a firm alliance to one of the two Strawinsky Suites or the original for piano is not possible. The Erickson version for Concert Band of 1968 is an orchestral transcription of the piano pieces and does not adopt anything from Strawinsky’s orchestral version.

Historical Recording: Toronto 30th March 1963, Massey Hall,Members of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Symphony Orchestraunder the direction of Igor Strawinsky.

CD-Edition: VI/6-9.

Autograph: The autograph score was transferred from the inventory of Chester into the British Library in London; there is a signed orchestration of the Marche for twelve solo instruments dated 25th March 1915 in the Paul Sacher Stiftung in Basel.
