  • Description:


    One of Stravinsky's most tender scores - a love letter to the Russia of his childhood The Fairy's Kiss lovingly adapts more than a dozen songs and piano pieces by Tchaikovsky. The action of the ballet depicts a child kissed by a Fairy ; later, on his wedding day, he is carried off to the Land of Eternal Dwelling. The story suggested to Stravinsky `an allegory with Tchaikovsky himself. The Fairy's kiss on the heel of the child is also the Muse marking Tchaikovsky at his birth` - and later terminating his mortal existence at the height of his powers. The static coda (not to be found in the Divertimento) is among Stravinsky's most sublime inspirations
