French Fellowship
Stravinsky’s Pulcinella

Stravinsky’s Pulcinella suite is the highlight in a vibrant concert to showcase the 2018 SSO Fellows.

The SSO Fellows are talented young musicians on the cusp of an orchestral career, and by October they’re reaching the culmination of a year of mentoring and professional experience. To showcase their talents, Fellowship Artistic Director Roger Benedict has devised an appealing French-flavoured concert with a neoclassical theme.

Poulenc’s Suite française was written for a play set in the royal court of 16th-century France and he gives a chic twist to antique dances from the time. Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, commissioned for the Ballets Russes as a tribute to commedia dell’arte, does the same thing: cunningly reworking music from the 18th century and infusing it with modern genius. In between these delightful pieces, Australian mezzo-soprano Caitlin Hulcup will join the Fellows to perform Ravel’s intoxicating songs based on poems by the symbolist Stéphane Mallarmé.
