Stravinsky's Pulcinella

I just heard this wonderful ballet by Igor Stravinsky, based on some older music and the themes of Italian Commedia dell'Arte.  Read more about that wonderfully colorful street theater here.  Meanwhile--here is the music.  You can see the characters as Stravinsky plays with the different instruments.  Below are links to the complete score.

The Firebird followed--and that, that was magnificent.
