Style: Strawinsky’s First Symphony constitutes a stylistic synthesis of Wagner (Tristan-atmosphere), Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov, the last named a composer whom Strawinsky had much admired since his youth (the sentiment was not returned). His use of first-movement sonata form suggests a meticulous application of textbook rules, with the result that only in the Scherzo, with its folklike reminiscences of the Dance of the Wet Nurses from Petrushka, does the work really come alive. This movement, which is heavily indebted to the Russian school, including Tchaikovsky, later took on an independent existence as a ballet intermezzo.

Dedication: >Доромy yчителю моемy / Hикoлaю Андреевичy / Pимcкомy-Кoрcaкoвy / Meinem teuren Lehrer / Nikolai Andreewitsch / Rimsky-Korsakow< [To my dear teacher Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov].

Duration: 11′ 26″ + 6′ 03″ +13′ 52″ + 8′ 32″.

Date of origin: between 1905 and 1907 in St Petersburg. The individual movements are dated: I: 18 July 1905; II: 21 July 1905; III: 4 August 1905; and IV: 24 September 1905. Strawinsky’s revisions date from 1907 onwards.

First performance: 22nd January 1908 in St Petersburg within the framework of the Belayev Concerts under Hugo Warlich*. Warlich had previously (27th March 1907) conducted a private performance of the second and third movements with the St Petersburg Court Orchestra. The revised version was introduced by Ernest Ansermet conducting the Orchestre du Kursaal in the Kursaal at Montreux on 2 April 1914. Strawinsky himself conducted the French première with the Orchestre Symphonique de Paris in the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on 16th November 1928. He later gave the first American performance in Chicago on 22nd January 1935.

* According to Goubault, Felix Blumenfeld.

Remarks: The autograph of the full score includes the first line of a nonsense rhyme, ‘Chicher-Yacher’, the words and music of which reappear in the third of the Three Little Songs of 1913. It is thought that this is one of the themes on which Strawinsky used to improvise in his youth. Its appearance in the Symphony, where it features prominently in over half the final movement, may be interpreted as an early pre-echo of the grotesque and parodistic elements in Strawinsky’s later works. As such, it invests the movement with the hint of a joke.

Significance: Although Strawinsky never had any need to distance himself from the present piece, it can hardly be said to represent a milestone in the history of the symphony in general. None the less, it remains an important piece in terms of the composer’s own development inasmuch as it reveals his earliest signs of originality, signs that include rhythmic variety, a refusal to revel in late Romantic sonorities, a chamberlike treatment of the orchestra and an attempt to clarify the musical textures.

Situationsgeschichte: The Symphony was created as the product of the teacher-student relationship between Strawinsky and Rimsky-Korsakov. The latter told his student to orchestrate classical compositions, and then corrected the mistakes under his scrutiny, while the pupil had to explain the artistic construction of the works. When Strawinsky began the composition of the Symphony one-and-a-half years after starting his tuition, he proceeded in the same way. Every completed section of a movement he gave to Rimsky-Korsakov, so that his teacher could oversee the composition of the entire Symphony section by section. The same went for the orchestration. As opposed to the French aesthetic of orchestration, which considered melodic, harmonic, structural and instrumentational inspiration as a single unified entity, Rimsky-Korsakov taught orchestration as the elucidation of the structural idea. For Rimsky-Korsakov, composition and orchestration were two spiritually separated events, which were to be overseen separately as separate acts in their own right.

Revised version: Serious writers on Strawinsky have long spoken of a revised version of the work first conducted by Ansermet in Montreux. Commenting on the first performance, Rimsky-Korsakov had complained that the work was far too heavily orchestrated and that the writing for the trombones was particularly infelicitous in their middle register. He also criticized the work for its undue dependence on his own and Glazunov’s style of composition. But Strawinsky could not have altered the work’s structure and denied his debt to Rimsky-Korsakov and the Belayev circle that included Glazunov without eschewing the very principles on which the symphony was based. In turn this would have been tantamount to abandoning the piece in its original version. We shall not go far wrong, therefore, in assuming that Strawinsky’s revisions were limited in essence to improvements on the level of instrumentational technique and that these changes were made immediately after the first performance in 1907 and certainly by the date of the printed edition of 1914. Roman Vlad also held this opinion. If this is so, these revisions must have found their way into the published edition of the full score, which appeared in the same year as Ansermet’s performance. If this hypothesis is accepted, it becomes difficult to argue for the existence of a revised version as against a printed edition of the first version of the work. Support for this hypothesis also comes from the fact that Strawinsky never made any public comments on this subject. The question of a revised version cannot be settled by reference to the published editions of the piece.

Versions: The success of Strawinsky’s three Russian ballets will have made it easy for the Russian publishing house of Jurgenson to include in its list a symphony by a beginner and to publish the complete orchestral score in 1914 at a price of 10 roubles. The edition was most attractively presented and easy to read. The copy in London includes a number of performance markings added in pencil in German (for example on pages 103 or 105, etc.). Encouraged by the interest in new works on the part of contemporary concert audiences, the publisher also issued a complete set of parts at this time for 20 roubles, but no copies seem to have survived in any of the major German libraries. This also applies to the additional parts that were available at this time and that cost 1.25 roubles each. The conducting score was followed in 1928 by an arrangement for piano for four hands that was prepared in Moscow by N. Gilayev, almost certainly without Strawinsky’s approval. In the wake of the expropriations undertaken by the Leninist regime, Jurgenson’s rights passed to the Leipzig publisher Robert Forberg, who reprinted the conducting score, its sale being restricted to the Magdeburg firm of Heinrichshofen, while the performing rights were held by Adler-Edition of Berlin. The date of the Heinrichshofen edition is disputed: the copy in London no longer has a jacket title but was acquired on 26th June 1934. According to the library’s catalogue, it was printed and published in 1933. The copy in the Bavarian State Library in Munich, conversely, survives complete and is dated 1931 by the library. The pocket score was not published until 1964. It appeared under the imprint of Robert Forberg, who had moved from Leipzig to Bad Godesberg following the Second World War. There were clearly at least two different versions of the title-page of this pocket score, the first of which still names Jurgenson as the publisher. The present publisher has been unable to throw any light on this matter. The performance material – the conducting score and set of parts – was available only for hire. The material for both versions was the same. The New York publishing house of Edwin F. Kalmus later brought out a pirated edition of the orchestral version for the American market, suppressing all reference to the work’s copyright, the original plate number, the dedicatee and the original publisher, whose name he replaced with his own.

Performance history: It is to Eric Walter White that we owe the information that the Scherzo was sometimes used as an independent intermezzo at performances of the Ballets Russes.
