* The translation of the title into numerous foreign languages was evidently fun for Strawinsky; in his estate, there is a note on which he notated translations in 8 languages, including Finnish, and in his printed conducting score, he added a further two in his handwriting.

Summary: Introduction (1). First Scene : vitch has lost his way in the forest while hunting for the Firebird. He leaps over a wall and finds himself (transformation) in Kastchei’s magic garden in front of an apple tree full of golden fruit (2). The Firebird appears, and vitch tries to catch it (3). The Firebird circles the apple tree and plucks one of the golden fruits (4). As it does this, vitch succeeds in catching the Firebird (5). Its imploring pleas mollify Ivan, who sets it free. In thanks for this, the Firebird gives him one of its golden feathers. If Ivan gets into any danger at any time, he is to throw it into the air and help will be given to him. The Firebird leaves the garden – vitch remains there (6). Out of the palace come thirteen princesses who are held captive by Kastchei. They use the night for their secret playing, and dance around the tree with the golden apples, each one plucking one apple (7), and then begin a ball game with them (8). Ivan observes them secretly for a while and then reveals himself. When they become aware of him, they break off their game in shock. They soon lose their fear and embarrassment, and they allow him to dance a Round Dance (Khorovod = an ancient Slavic Round Dance) with them (9). vitch and the beautiful Zarevna, one of the princesses, recognise their love for one another (10). As signals announce the nearing morning, the princesses fearfully leave the garden and return to the palace (11). Ivan is overpowered by his love and his daring. Although the beautiful Zarevna warns him not to enter the palace, saying that he will be destroyed by the demon Kastchei, he tries to leap the palace gate. While he is infiltrating the palace, a fairy-like peal of bells sounds. Kastchei’s giant guards appear and take him prisoner (12). Kastchei appears. Full of malevolent joy, he begins a conversation with Ivan, the course of which brings him into a fearful rage. He pays no attention to Ivan’s intercessions for the Princesses. vitch, like the previous people who tried to break into the palace, is also to be turned into stone. While Kastchei begins the incantation, Ivan uses the golden feather left him by the Firebird for his rescue in greatest need. He throws it into the air (13). The Firebird appears (14) and forces Kastchei’s entourage to dance (15), which eventually flows into an infernal dance orgy and all the participants at the end sink to the ground exhausted (16). In the meanwhile, Kastchei has hurried to the golden apple tree, as a small box is concealed there in a hollow; in the box is an egg, and the egg contains Kastchei’s immortality. The Firebird’s magic lullaby however puts Kastchei to sleep (17), and when he awakes from his stupefaction, it is too late for him, as the Firebird has betrayed the secret of Kastchei’s immortality to vitsch. Ivan takes the box and shatters the egg; at that moment, Kastchei loses his life and magical power in past and present. Kastchei, who appeared immortal because his life-force was not stored inside him, meaning that any attack on his person would be unsuccessful, dies. It becomes dark (18). Second Act : when it becomes light again, Kastchei’s magical garden and palace have disappeared and the knights that had been transformed into demons or turned into stone are disenchanted and become men again. In their midst stand, forever united, vitch and the beautiful Zarevna. Once again, the Firebird can be seen on the stage, which is resplendent with light and full of rejoicing, and then the curtain falls (19).

Source: The scenario was created by Michael Fokine, who connected together the two originally separate groups of sagas of the Immortal Kastchei and the Firebird , creating a new legend out of it. He kept the Russian topic of Kastchei as a symbol of fear, but reinterpreted the symbol of the Firebird, in that he transformed the Russian dream symbol into the destruction of ones greatest, forbidden wishes; the Firebird is the dialectical antithesis of Kastchei, so that both figures are placed into a dramaturgically effective conflict between good and evil. What remained was a three-part construction: the fighting man (vitch), who, with the help of the supernatural forces of good (the Firebird), destroys the supernatural evil (Kastchei). Of the old Firebird myth, which does not equate itself uncommented with the forces of good, very little remains. Nevertheless, something of the old symbolic value of the two subjects reappears in the timelessness of the bare portrayal of the plot, which was mixed with Christian concepts and all political ideologies of the day, as he managed to present universally relevant events from human life dramatically on stage. vitch, young and burning for action, hunts the Firebird, i.e. he is tangled up in his youthful dreams and his wishes. He catches the Firebird, but is not able to rid himself of his moral responsibilities. He lets the Firebird free, and of his own free will, and this therefore gives up his excluding dreams. The Firebird on the other hand, hands over one of his feathers to him, similarly voluntarily. The magic of which the Russian proverb speaks, that he who holds the feather (of the Firebird) will receive misfortune, is broken by this. Ivan’s conduct forces the Firebird into partnership with him as a moral gift in return, and the latter in the Russian fairy tale is nothing but a dead thing that one wants to own and for the ownership of which people commit crimes. With an act of mutual gratitude and a sequence of voluntary decisions that balance one another, the pact between vitch and the Firebird is settled. It is from this point on that the struggle between the Firebird and Kastchei becomes inevitable through the Firebird’s dutiful bond to vitch. Of the large number of unachieved dreams, a single dream remains, but this one is imbued with a magical power that promised success, because it was achieved without violence as the result of a natural act. What it wishes to achieve is immediately shown by Ivan’s struggle against Kastchei for the beloved princess, the natural and therefore favourable struggle of the youth against fear of existence, longing and love. The dream, embodied by the feather, reveals to him his thoughts in the form of the thirteen princesses. It follows him and eventually overpowers Kastchei, i.e. he achieves a victory over himself. In this profound fable, the Christian world of symbols Strawinsky’s is no stronger in his operatic works than the atheist world of his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov, but it eventually has its effect on the dualism of Good and Evil and the voluntary renunciation made out of pity and reverence. Not everything in the libretto was written by Fokine. The final coronation scene was Strawinsky’s idea, not Fokine’s. This explains the dysfunctional proportions of the work, as the second Act follows an extended scene with many numbers, while the second Act is in reality not more than a single number.

Construction: The ballet consists of 19 plot sections, all of which have subtitles, but they are not numbered; they are in the form of self-standing musical numbers. The original score is, like the piano reduction, written in Russian and French. The 1st Firebird Suite from 1919 is made up of 5 ballet numbers which are in Arabic script in the Index and in the musical text in Roman numerals; they have subtitles for the sections which relate to the plot and which are in Russian and French, have separate sets of figures for each number, and some have metronome markings. They have their own transitions and the orchestration is identical to the original. The 2nd Firebird Suite 1919 consists of either 4 or 7 pieces (depending on one’s method of counting) that are not numbered, and across the titles and separate sets of figures for each number. There are subtitles for the numbers, but no instructions for the choreography or scenery apart from those which can be gleaned from the titles of the movements. If one counts the movements using the titles, there are 7 sections to the Suite, but if one counts using the sets of figures stretching across the separate numbers, there are 4 sections to the Suite. The 3rd Firebird Suite 1945 is made up of 10 titled, distinct sections, which are not through-numbered, have no choreographical instructions. Of these, 5 are identical to the 2nd Firebird Concert Suite . The allocation of the roles of the movements, which have small changes in the orchestration from the Second Suite, is in most cases evident from the title. The score contains exact instructions for cuts, as well as the playing of single numbers. The piano reduction, which was completed by Strawinsky himself, differs in many details of the layout of the original printed score. In the original, separated sections of the plot were put together under one subtitle, and some Italian tempo markings are changed. The metronome markings are swapped, the figuring is different, being reduced from 209 to 208 figures.

Style: Strawinsky’s music corresponds to Fokine’s three-level concept of the Firebird, Kastchei and the Prince, with music written and divided into three levels which subtly represents the living spaces in the plot inhabited by the characters; the colourfulness of the dream world is achieved by means of an oriental texture of emphasised neutral intervals, such as minor seconds, sequences of whole tones, tritone movement, parallel augmented movement in triads, movement in fifths and ninth chords, underlined by brightly, fizzing colours in the woodwinds, harp, celesta, xylophone and string tremoli ; Kastchei’s menacing world is conjured up using chromaticisms, diminished tone colours and pentatonic writing, made even stronger by the eerie, horrible orchestral colours discovered in the Romantic period, such as trombone- and idiosyncratically written woodwind lines, or strings being played col legno . Ivan’s bright world is represented by gently audible, quintessentially Russian diatonic intonation figures, melodic lines in fourths and condensed rhythmic writing of folkloristic origin. The coloration of structure and movement through the conflict of the separate sound worlds corresponds faithfully to the plot or interprets it and enables the listener, with a knowledge of the literary material of the plot and the compositional setting, to follow the events on stage, even if they cannot be seen. The manner in which Strawinsky’s music registers every change in the situation, all the feelings of the peoples’ souls, in the motifs and mirrors them in their variations, allows new combinations to be created using of the main soundworlds, such as the chromatic brightening of the Russian diatonicism when the Firebird encounters Ivan, and chromatic darkening of the Russian diatonicism when Kastchei encounters Ivan. There are also changes to Kastchei’s world in his encounter with the fairy-tale, oriental luxuriousness of the Firebird, and these all turn, in the context of this new style, a simple piece of ballet music into a milestone in musical history.

The references of the sources: Strawinsky's ballet is, in terms of content and composition, indebted to Rimsky-Korsakof's opera Unhold Ohneseele (or Kaschtei the Immortal ), which was premiered by students at the St. Petersburg Conservatory on 27th March 1905. Rimsky-Korsakof's librettist, Petrovski, transformed Kaschtei into a symbol for the inhuman man, whose possibilities for gaining power are dependent on the further dehumanising of his own flesh and blood, namely his daughter, or, even more, a symbol for the inhumanity as a whole. When she is shattered by the knowing pity that is mounted upon her by the oppressed, it also shatters Kaschtei and he dies. The political parallel with the uneasy years around 1905 was easy to make. The actual victor in this game against the Tsar and the rule of the Tsars is obviously the Russian people, who overturned the status quo : it is the suppressed people that show sympathy against the suppressor and draw out every tear with which Kastchei’s life trickles away. What Strawinsky did not incorporate, and what as a result ensured that his ballet was a timeless statement, was the foreground reference to contemporary political events. Furthermore, even stronger, influences in the orchestration and structure came from Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera The Golden Cockerel , which was completed in 1907 while Strawinsky was still a student, and in which the human world is represented by diatonicism and the enchanted world of magic by oriental-sounding chromaticism. Devices of this and a similar type are, incidentally, centuries old in opera and ballet music. Works such as Sadko and Mlada have also left traces on the Firebird , as the dramaturgy or the importences that the separate numbers have received.

Folklore: In numbers 3, 6, 9, 10 and 19, original Russian folksongs are incorporated which Strawinsky took exclusively from Rimsky-Korsakov’s editions. For numbers 3, 6 and 9, it is the song Steppe of Mosdok = Oh you Steppe, my Steppe from: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov: 40 Russian Folksongs, collected by T. Filippov, 1882, Nr. 11; for numbers 10 and 19 it was the two songs: no. 79 In the Garden and no. 21 Did not the pines rustle at the gate = At the gate a pine tree sways from the Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov collection: 100 Russian National Songs, Op. 24, 1876.

Remarks: Ballet: After Diaghilev had heard the première of Fireworks on 6th February 1909 (the date is not entirely certain), he recognised in Strawinsky, with whom he was distantly related, a composer who would likely have a great influence on the future of music. He gave him at first a few orchestration commissions ( Kobold by Grieg, 2 numbers from Les Sylphides ) which Strawinsky produced with such resplendent success for the performances in Paris on 19th May and 2nd June 1909 that Diaghilev, who due to Lyadov’s very slow work rate* was now under extreme time pressure, asked him to undertake the composition of the ballet The Firebird . The process was set in motion by Diaghilev in the early part of 1909 and it was developed by Fokine for his own choreography. Fokine would happily have had Nicolai Tsherepnin as the composer, but Diaghilev gave the commission to his old theory teacher Lyadov, who took too much time for the work, did not manage it, and was therefore evidently not unhappy when the burden of composition was removed from him. Strawinsky broke off from work on his opera The Nightingale and started work in November at the family dacha of Rimsky-Korsakov outside St. Petersburg, where he started writing the first bars of the introduction. A title page of the scenario from autumn 1909 only featured one act with an apotheosis. In December, he again found himself in St. Petersburg and was in such a great hurry to complete it that he was able to finish the composition in March 1910, and the subsequent orchestration a few weeks later; he sent the score to Paris by the middle of May. The final corrections bear the date 18th May 1910. – Suites : The first suite was created with the intention of bringing numbers from the Firebird into the concert hall and, through the Suite, to stimulate demand for the ballet. – The composition of the second Suite was connected to the disappropriation of the Moscow Publishers Jurgenson by the Communists. Since Jurgenson was not able to sell the ballet outside Russia, and as the first Suite could not be choreographed and was thus not a valid replacement for the ballet due to its drastically shortened contents, Strawinsky required a new publishing house and a version that took into account the changed situation shortly after the First World War. It had to portray the plot more effectively than the fragmentary First Suite, and had to take into account the realities of musical performance of the time with smaller orchestral forces. The idea also stretches far back. In a letter to Jurgenson dated 24th July 1914, Strawinsky was already toying with the idea of a fragmentary orchestral reduction of his project, so that orchestras with smaller forces would be able to perform at least sections of the Firebird . The Berceuse published in 1914 was the first step in this direction. The Finale did not come to fruition during his time with Jurgenson, but was not abandoned, as the Second Firebird Suite shows. By the beginning of April 1919, he had completed the difficult task of re-orchestrating the Firebird Suite. The score was sent to Chester Publishers in London. In the meanwhile, Jurgenson had created a gateway to the West with the Leipzig publishers, Robert Forberg, which neither Strawinsky nor Chester nor Schott were aware of. Strawinsky and both publishing houses would go on to lose a trial in Leipzig. As a result of this, the Suite had to be taken back, and this resulted in a quarrel between Strawinsky and the director of Chester, Henry (Harry) Kling. – The third Firebird Suite was written in 1945 for a new choreography by Adolph Bolm. Strawinsky had to rework the new music to the Firebird so that it regained a plot that could be danced to. Strawinsky referred back to both his other Suites, adopted the simplified orchestration, and arranged the score for 55 players. Leeds Music Corporation acted as the publishers, with whom there would soon be legal difficulties. The staged première was not the artistic success that would satisfy the performers, owing to an error-ridden printed edition. – The unfortunate mess concerning the publishers of the work and its reproductions was brought to an end by Schott publishers in Mainz as they gradually bought up all the rights to the Firebird music.

* Lyadov suffered from depressions.

Situationsgeschichte of Ballet reform: Under Tsar Alexander II, Ivan Alexandrovitch Vsevoloshki, as director of the Imperial St. Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre, ended the state theatre monopoly in 1881, thus allowing for the first time private companies to offer concert and theatre performances. As a prerequisite for the beginning of an entirely new Russian era of Ballet, out of which the first things to come were the great Tchaikovsky ballets, he did away with the position of the official ballet composer in 1886. As a result, the music gained a different significance, but the plots of the performances, which lasted over two-and-a-half hours, rather resembled, with their pomp, grandiosity, their scenery with a host of non-dancing extras and their expressionlessness, those of a Grand French opera by Meyerbeer. The great Russian dance reform, comparable to Wagner’s reform of opera, at the turn between the 19th Century and 20th Century, was an achievement made above all by Michael Fokine, who made the Firebird into a cornerstone of the recent history of ballet. Fokine did not shun the formal or formalist dance tradition of the 19th century, but he reworked the formulae into comprehensible sections of the plot so skilfully that they lost their formulaic quality and became dramaturgically compelling. In this way, a meaningful plot was eventually created, which was not only for the purpose of offering opportunities for dancing. The Grand Pas de deux between vitsch and the beautiful Zarevna for example evoked one of the basic forms of Classical ballet, the extended solo number of the Prima ballerina, in which she demonstrates all her artistry and uses a partner, who up to that point had not had any other function than to support her so that she does not fall. The Pas de deux was an alibi constructed as an excuse for an essential grandiose solo performance and in it is comparable to an instrumental cadenza in which violins and pianists detach themselves from the orchestra for a moment in order to show themselves to their audience as artists. The Pas de deux in the Firebird ended this tradition. It is a real dance for two partners, and comes at a moment in which the plot not only allows it but demands it. When the prince and princess meet each other and learn to love one another, that the two should dance together is no longer a contrived formula, but a constituent part of a meaningfully realized plot, independent of the Classical Pas de deux form consisting of Introduction (Duo), Variation I (Allegro = Male solo), Variation II (Adagio = Female solo), Coda (Duo). It is, in accordance with the plot, a genuine dance duet between two equally important partners, of whom neither the one nor the other enjoys an actual higher renown, but they find a choreographical unity together. In the year of the première, this was the most remarked-upon step in ballet day-to-day, the new way and the reform that came to fruition through the narrow collaboration of music, choreography and greater new ideas of ballet, when they were given the creative opportunity to develop as a result of Diaghilev’s unparalleled talent for organization. Diaghilev did not originally come from the point of view of the music and certainly not from dance, rather, like Strawinsky, from jurisprudence and then from visual arts. He represented French Impressionism and Symbolism on the Russian front and as a result made himself suspicious to the Conservatives based around Rimsky-Korsakov, whose pupil he was. He soon had to leave the St. Petersburg Conservatoire again. In 1898 he founded the soon-to-be-famous newspaper the World of Art , which became the centre of attention in that field, which was up in arms against the realistic aesthetic in art. Diaghilev’s organizational skill was one-of-a-kind, and when he dissolved his art circle in 1905, he built up his epoch-defining ballet troupe, the Ballets Russes , which he was able to turn into the most important societal event in the Parisian season from 1910. Diaghilev’s skill lay in sniffing out talent; he only engaged in fundamental artistic questions of principle in certain matters. He allowed the artists to work freely according to their ideas and contented himself with ensuring their material existence. As all the obligations, commissions and ideas came from him and rested on his shoulders as the man in charge, the appearance of the Ballet Russes had a real vigour in the history of ideas that would not have been achievable as a result of good achievements in dance and music alone. It was in this way that the ballet reform that was Diaghilev’s and his troupe’s historical achievement came to fruition. For Fokine, his meeting with Strawinsky arranged by Diaghilev was predestined. Strawinsky was composing inside the framework of the possibilities set out by Fokine and sought neither to achieve musical self-flattery at the cost of meaning nor to superimpose opera effects, as was the case with Tchaikovsky, onto a ballet plot, as it was necessary to synchronize music with forms of movement. Fokine for his part bowed to Strawinsky, in that he gave up his own demand that the music adapt absolutely to suit the choreography in order to create one organism. Musical peculiarities however did still play a large role. There never before had been a ballet score of such rhythmic complexity. Up to that point, the dancers were used to fairly simple, almost schematically constructed metrical and rhythmic sequences of music. They corresponded to the general formulaic nature of the ballet-music tradition and created no particular problems for the dancing by their own intrinsic character. Even difficult music was only given to expert dancers. Now, on the other hand, a work of art was created with the Firebird which, from the fascination inspired by its musical invention and the profundity of its inner relationships, became a great piece of music, and thus claimed its own place in its history. The dancers also had to rethink things, and when contemporary observers spoke of many tears flowing during the rehearsal period, this was the result of this new style of multi-layered rhythmic writing that was Strawinsky’s first personal contribution to the history of New Music.

Significance: The music of the Firebird , measured by the amount of public applause, was an work of art in itself and as a prototype for Strawinsky’s new style of ballet was the composer’s most successful work ever, even if due to the wrangling over the rights that was to arise a short time later, there was no financial reward. The statistics seem to show that Strawinsky’s Firebird is next to Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake as the most often played ballet of the 20th Century. The ballet is indebted for its place in history to the characteristics of its music, orchestration and choreography, but on one level, also to the coincidence that conspired to make Strawinsky the composer, because the model for the piece, Rimsky Korsakov’s Golden Cockerel , was first heard in France, after the Firebird had already become part of the repertoire. This is how Strawinsky came for many years to be associated with the idea that he was the person that perfected the art of Russian orchestration.

Versions: The rights to the Firebird went to the Moscow publishers, Jurgenson. They published the piano reduction in 1911 (1910 according to Strawinsky) of the score (not the ballet version, which remained hire material), i.e. the piece that would later be called the 1 st Firebird Suite. In addition, there was no set of parts available to purchase. One year later, so in 1912, they published the Berceuse as a self-standing, now very rare piece for orchestra (London h.3992.u.2.), and in 1913 as crowd pullers as part of a two-volume series Trio Russes , the Berceuse and Ronde des princesses for piano trio in an arrangement by Alexander Krein, editions from which only the Berceuse is only traceable in London (: h.3992i.1.). Due to the altered political situation, Jurgenson was no longer able to act for Strawinsky. Still towards the end of the First World War in 1917, the Ronde des princesses was transcribed for organ by Clarence Dickinson, and then in 1922 in two volumes, the Berceuse and Finale and again the Rondo were transcribed by Maurice Besly, who specialised in organ transcription. The tragedy of the 2nd Firebird Suite occurred between 1921 and 1924; it was published by Chester in London, but after the trial was lost, it was not allowed to be sold on its own without Forberg’s permission. The conducting score, instrumental parts, expanded instrumental parts and several pocket-score editions, which are formatted slightly differently, fell under this judgement. There are several copies of this edition that can be traced, because Chester and Forberg made an arrangement on 19th May 1927. Chester bore the costs of the trial, and paid to Forberg 50 % of the copies already sold and 60% of any copies sold in the future, but could not sell any more of his printed editions. In which order these were published cannot be established. Presumably, Chester first offered the French pocket score having already published the conducting score and the orchestral parts that were available to buy, made the material only for hire, and then completed an English version with the same conditions. Whether Chester withdrew the pocket score with the announcement of the orchestral material being available for sale after they had lost the trial can only be established to a certain extent. In any case, there is a line about parts for sale and additional part material that is printed only in the French-titled conducting edition and the pocket-score edition that goes with it. A replacement page, 65b, was inserted into the conducting score which enabled the transition from the end of the Infernal Dance to the Berceuse. This replacement page is printed into the pocket scores, meaning that these are one page longer, 78 pages in comparison with the 77 pages of the conducting score. Schott publishers’ interest in the Firebird was great, and unlike Forberg in Leipzig, they also possessed sufficient financial wherewithal. Forberg did hold the rights, but had less to sell because they could scarcely produce anything. The situation with the Firebird had therefore gone completely wrong, although the piano reduction had apparently been made accessible again by Forberg in 1920, with acknowledgement to Jurgenson (Moscow and Leipzig). This edition was included by Universal Edition, Vienna in their catalogue under the number 7806. There was however still a second, presumably later edition on the market that removed the reference to Jurgenson and only named Forberg. In 1929, Schott made an arrangement with Forberg and published with their permission the two violin transcriptions by Kochanski. The Berceuse , dedicated to Kochanski, had 4 editions during Strawinsky’s lifetime with 2,300 copies printed in total, and the 2nd edition was printed in the same year as the first edition (print runs: 27th August 1929=600; 19th November 1929: 400; 11th December 1930: 800; 14th November 1949: 500); after Strawinsky’s death there were 3 further editions up to the end of the century with an additional 557 copies printed in total (print runs: 7th June 1971: 200; 4/9/1978: 200; 14/4/1990: 100 [151 + 6]). The Ronde des princesses , which is dedicated to Kochanski, was printed in somewhat smaller numbers. Schott printed 5 editions in Strawinsky’s lifetime, with 2,100 copies printed in total, of which the 2nd edition also took place in the same year as that of the first edition (print runs: 29th August 1929: 600; 19 thNovember 1929: 400; 18th June 1931: 300; 3rd August 1948: 400; 14th January 1970: 400). There then followed from Strawinsky’s death up to the end of the century 2 editions with only another 237 copies printed (print runs: 12/9/1991: 100 [125 + 6]; 5/7/1996: 100 [105 + 6]). In the same year, there was another printing in Moscow of the 1st Firebird Suite which, according to the Russian understanding of it, was not an illegal printing because the rights belonged to Jurgenson and their sale to Forberg was not recognized. Jurgenson in the meanwhile had been transformed into the Russian State publishers. Between 1932 and 1937, Schott continued with an entire sequence of transcriptions. The critical date was the 18th July 1933. On this day, Schott took over the rights to the Firebird from Forberg because Forberg had fallen into economic difficulties and, ‘ bowing to its need ’ had to split itself from its titles which it had won by prosecution in order to redevelop itself. All editions published before this key date bear a mark of permission from Forberg , and in all after this day, it does not appear. After the violin transcriptions dedicated to Kochanski came the violin transcriptions by Dushkin and the piano transcriptions by Guido Agosti and F. Willms. The surviving two sets of corrections for Dushkin’s violin’s transcriptions of the Berceuse were completed by Strawinsky on 13th December 1931. The 3rd page of the piano part is so full of corrections that the page looks as if Strawinsky had corrected more than he left untouched. The version for violin and piano of the Berceuse , Ronde des princesses and the Scherzo (according to Kochanski and Dushkin) were sold alongside one another. The Dushkin version of the Berceuse was first printed in 1932 with a print run of 800 copies (print run: 17th January 1932: 800). During Strawinsky’s lifetime, there then followed 4 further editions (print runs: 28th October 1937: 300; 12th November 1946: 300; 21th June 1955: 300; 13th May 1969: 200), so that 1,900 copies were printed in total. After Strawinsky’s death, there followed up to the end of the century 3 print runs which printed a total of 474 copies (print runs: 18/5/1979: 200; 4/4/1990: 100 (135); 5/6/1995: 100 (133 = 6). Dushkin’s version of the Scherzo was first printed in 1933. During Strawinsky’s lifetime it was printed in 3 print runs of 1,400, and after his death was given a new cover (print runs 2nd February 1933: 800; 10th December 1951: 300; 15th October 1965: 300 and 19/1/1977: 300; 25/11/1983: 300). Aside from free copies given away, Schott barely sold 240 or 220 copies up to 1939. After the War as well, the sales figures were not high. Schott had 120 copies of the Berceuse left in stock on 30 thJune 1965, and another 15 copies of the Scherzo . There were 5 editions of Agosti’s transcription made in Strawinsky’s lifetime (print runs: 17th November 1934: 600; 3rd August 1948: 400; 17th April 1952: 300; 17th April 1959: 300; 15 thSeptember 1965: 300) with a total of 1,900 copies, and between his death and the end of the century, there were 4 editions (print runs: 5/1975: 300; 25/3/1980: 300; 13/10/1986: 300; 11/9/1990: 300 [323+6]), producing a further 1,229 copies. The last two editions were published with a new cover. The original edition was published by the middle of March 1937 at the latest with a new set of adverts, a splitting process which makes the dating of the new binding rate for the surviving engraving books more difficult, even impossible. Both transcriptions by Willms, the Berceuse and Ronde des Princesses were published in 1937 in a first edition of 600 copies. 1,700 copies of the Berceuse were printed during Strawinsky’s lifetime in 4 editions in total (print runs: 18th February 1937: 600; 3rd August 1948: 400; 3rd September 1953: 400; 8th February 1962: 300). A fifth edition of 300 copies was run on 28/7/1972 and a 6th as ”Quasi Nova Nachdruck nach vielen Jahren” [Quasi Nova reprint after many years], as it was described in the engraving books, on 11/3/1993 for 400 copies (416 + 6) copies. The Ronde des Princesses had 6 editions in Strawinsky’s lifetime, with 2,200 copies printed in total (print runs: 18th February 1937: 600; 14th February 1944: 200; 3rd August: 500; 22nd May 1953: 300; 11 March 1958: 300; 22nd March 1962: 300). Here as well the print job was striking and indicative of the situation. After Strawinsky’s death, there were 4 editions up to the end of the century, with 946 copies printed in total; the penultimate one gained a new cover (print runs: 6/6/1972: 300; 23/6/1980: 300; 25/1/1989: 120 [140]; 28 July 1993: 150 [100+6]). - In 1973, Schott publishers published a competing edition of the same pieces that Agosti had transcribed, and they were even printed in the same order. A comparison of the two editions not with the orchestral score but with the piano reduction of the Firebird produced by Igor Strawinsky himself, shows their different objectives. - The first print run for the piano reduction after the transfer of the rights to Schott in Mainz took place with a print run of 300 copies on 5th August 1936. The new crisis began with the cultural politics of National Socialism, which put the director of Schott into a quandary between their patriotic ideals on the one hand and their financial interests, artistic sanity and friendship with Strawinsky on the other. All attempts to keep Strawinsky in the German playing schedules failed. In the end, there was little else that the publishers could do other than to put the copies of Strawinsky’s music that had now become unsellable into storage and to hope for better times. When these times came after 1945, the old editions were sold off. They are easily recognizable by the French permission stamps that had to be printed on them in the years of the French inspection authorities. The subsequent print run of 250 copies, seven years later to the day (5th August 1943) grants an insight into the politics of the editorial staff. At this point in time, Strawinsky was in Germany and thus, in the countries possessed by Germany, was unsellable. All the playing houses were closed, and the War was recognized as being lost by those in the know. It could not be spoken aloud. Those who actually did speak it aloud in spite of this were denounced and ended up at the gallows for “undermining military morale”. The fact that Schott started at this point to stock up on their inventory of Strawinsky and stored them in the cellar until a new time allowed them to be sold, shows the appraisal of the situation as concerned the War and the politics of the time by the Strecker brothers. For others outside Schott’s specific area, this phenomenon can also be observed, i.e. that they were making structural predictions regarding how the collapse of the dictatorship at the time that the Nazis were at the height of their power would occur. After the War, 6 further print runs with a total of 2,000 copies printed were made up to the time of Strawinsky’s death (print runs: 26th October 1948: 300; 5th November 1952: 300; 11th March 1957: 300; 1st September 1961: 300; 19th October 1964: 400; 12th November 1968: 400).The subsequent 4 editions after Strawinsky’s death up to the end of the century alternate between 300 and 400 copies produced (print runs 14/1/1974: 400; 28/5/1980: 300; 23/7/1985: 400; 7/1/1991:350 [304+6]). In the meantime, Strawinsky had completed his Third Firebird Suite and come to an agreement about it with the American publishing firm, Leeds Music Corporation, in New York. The basic contract was signed on 18th December 1946 and the new work was already published by the next year. Leeds sold around 1,200 pocket scores between 1947 and 1963. This score was also transferred to the ownership of Schott. Schott printed 50 copies of the first edition of the conducting score of the 3rd Firebird Suite of 1945 in 1954 under the edition number 37, in 1966, 300 copies in a 2nd edition, and in 1988, now after Strawinsky’s death, 100 (150) in a 3rd edition (print runs: 18th May 1954, 17th February 1966 and, with a new cover, 21/12/1988). A conducting score of the Firebird Suite under an altered plate number (41478) was produced with a print run of 50 copies on 22nd February 1974, so after Strawinsky’s death. The situation evidently remained the same up to the end of the century. It was part of the hire material and not available for sale. The pocket score of the 3rd Firebird Suite from 1945, edition number 4420, was published from 1955 in 6 editions, with 5,800 copies produced in total during Strawinsky’s lifetime (print runs: 3rd May 1955: 1,200; 15th January 1960: 600; 20th October 1961: 1,000; 22nd April 1964: 1,000: 10th July 1967: 800; 23rd July 1969: 1,200). After Strawinsky’s death, there were a further 4,500 copies produced in 4 print runs (print runs: 6/6/1972: 1,200; 9/9/1974: 1,200; 6/6/1980: 1000; 23/2/1983: 1,100). At the end of 1947, Leeds published its John Klenner hit, Summer Moon , sung by the darling of the public at the time, Perry Como, which Strawinsky brought up at the trial, not because it was derived from the Ronde des Princesses , but because the first edition was printed in such a way that the impression was given that Strawinsky was also the composer of the hit. It was stored in London under the signature H.786.c.(4.) , an edition of the original [entry 4th December 1947] under H.786.c.(5.) , the new version produced without delay by Leeds to avoid responsibilities [entry 29th December 1947], and under E.1500.b.(16.) the set of orchestral parts belonging to the arrangements by Lou Singer [entry 6th April 1948]. The trial made the headlines in the United States, but it did not bring Strawinsky what he had hoped for. Strawinsky was entitled, as a result of a contract signed on 28th May 1947, to 2 cents of the sales of every copy sold. Leeds scarcely sold 100 copies in the first three years, 1947 to 1949, and between 1950 and 1963, they sold the same number again. The 400 cents, i.e. 4 dollars, which was his entire income in 17 years from the hit made him, according to German currency, 3 Marks between 1947 and 1949, and between 1950 and 1963, around 50 Pfennigs per year. Discounting the various illegal printings, all the editions printed without Schott emblems came before 19th May 1953. This is also true for the 3rd Firebird Suite. One must be careful with the term ‘illegal printing’. ‘Illegal printings’ are based on European concepts of morals and not American copyright laws. Strawinsky’s works were outside legal jurisdiction because a Russian could not register a copyright, and furthermore works composed by non-Russians remained unprotected by the Berne Convention in America. The subsequent printing of Strawinsky’s music restricted itself to a few scores ( Piano Studies , Firebird , Petrushka , Sacre , Simple Pieces , Five Fingers ) as well as to arrangements of a few excerpts from these and from the Soldier’s Tale , the Opera Le Rossignol and the symphonic poem from this, Chant du Rossignol , from which commercial success was promised. Kalmus however also reprinted composers such as Debussy, Grieg, Rimsky-Korsakov, Ippolitov-Ivanov and even Richard Strauss ( Till Eulenspiegel ) and protected itself principally with the printed statement that products of this type could not be sold in Europe (‘This copy is not to be sold in the countries of the Berne Copyright Convention’). The later justification by the publisher that the aim of the reprintings was that they had wanted to ensure that the earlier versions of the two first ballets, which Strawinsky had decided to abandon but which were artistically better, remained accessible to contemporaries and research, was a feeble attempt to justify their behaviour, because it was in reality a question of money, but it was in fact not at all entirely false. The first edition goes back to the year 1915 when George Copeland at Homeyer in Boston transcribed the Berceuse from the Firebird . The same piece was transcribed again by Charles Repper, then in the same year by Clarence Dickinson, and was then also transcribed for organ in 1928 by J. T. Quarles. Quarles’s transcription, which also contains instructions for the registrations, was certainly played, as handwritten interpretative markings in one of the few surviving copies in the Multnomah Country Library in Portland/Oregon prove. The later arrangers were people such as Gerard Alphenaar, Frederick Block, David J. Grunes, Max Hirschfeld, Paul Kay, the indefatigable Quinto Maganini and Gregory Stone, who were mainly working in the late 30’s and early 40’s and of whom some restricted themselves the insertion of fingering markings. Marks put a series of piano transcriptions onto the market in the 1941 Kaleidoscope edition, and compiled some of them, including several piano transcriptions of the Firebird , in a volume of collected piano works dedicated to Strawinsky; Maganini’s arrangements of the Berceuse in the New York edition ‘Musicus’ from 1941 was expanded in 1945 with different combinations, and together with the new arrangements (Flute & Piano, Violin & Piano, Viola & Piano, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon along with the corresponding scores and sets of parts available either as a packet or separately) were further sold under copyright protection. Nine arrangements of the Ronde des Princesses had previously been put on the market in 1942. The Fassio editions were taken on by Marks. As well as the Kaleidoscope edition, there were series such as the ‘Edition Musicus’ and ‘Pro Arte’, in which the same pieces were reprinted again and again. Evidently, the Berceuse and the Dance/Ronde des Princesses from the Firebird , as well as the Danse russe from Petruschka , enjoyed unstinting popularity. It can also not be ruled out that yet more editions of this type will appear over the course of time. Even the Russian printing of the original edition of the conducting score from 1964 (Государственное музыкальное издательство Москва ; 172 S. Folio[p.??]) may have been published without permission. – The Paris Conservatoire arranged through Alphone Leduc editions of orchestral studies ( REPERTOIRE DU CONSERVATOIRE NATIONAL DE PARIS ) in 1943 with the permission of the original publishers in which especially difficult orchestral excerpts were gathered together ( Traits difficiles ). In the selections for bassoon, cornet, trumpet and trombone stored in the National Library in Paris, there are excerpts from the Firebird , Petrushka , Sacre , the Soldier’s Tale and Pulcinella .

* Strawinsky also later reconciled with Forberg Publishers. Horst von Roebel sent him a case of wine along with his happy returns for his 75 thand 80 thbirthdays, and Strawinsky thanked him very politely and happily on 5 thFebruary 1963.

Autographs: The oil millionaire Jean Bartholoni (who evidently also composed; in any case, the première of the 2nd Firebird Suite on 12th April 1919 under Ansermet was preceded by the première of an orchestral composition La Nuit céde au Jour , a composition by Bartholoni, whose first names were not given) acquired the manuscript of the ballet score for 8.000 Francs from the composer and sent it in 1920 to the Conservatoire in Geneva, which had been founded by his family. A facsimile of the autograph was made in colour as an edition de luxe and given a critical and musicological appendix (Minkoff edition). – The autograph score of the 2nd Firebird Suite from 1919 is located in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris from which Berceuse and Finale are missing. – The Paul Sacher Stiftung in Basel is in possession of sections from the 3rd Firebird Suite. – The originals of the two piano reductions from 1910 and 1918 as well as the Kochanski transcription are stored in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York.
