The Chorale melody was written by Stravinsky in 1952, as a theme for organ improvisation by Marcel Dupre. I am grateful to Robert Craft and the Stravinsky Estate for permission to use it here. Stravinsky's melody is played by the first trumpet in each of the three chorale settings. All three are canonic in treatment, with the texture increasing from two parts in Chorale 1 to four parts (plus a tuba bass-line) in Chorale 3. The two Interludes take off from the finale notes of the chorale. In contrast both are quick, with a somewhat Stravinskian rhythmic exhuberance; Interlude 1 is scored for a trio (excluding the two trumpets), Interlude 2 for the full quintet.
Based on a chorale melody by Stravinsky (1952). 5 movements: 1. Chorale 1; 2. Interlude 1; 3. Chorale 2; 4. Interlude 2; 5. Chorale 3
