Le chant du rossignol is the symphonic poem Stravinsky extracted from his opera based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen, Le rossignol The Nightingale Stravinsky began composing Le rossignol in early while he was still a composition pupil of Rimsky-Korsakovand the first act of the opera was substantially completed by But the commission that led to the composition of L’Oiseau de feu The FirebirdPetrushkaand then Le Sacre du printemps The Rite of Spring delayed the composition of the second and third acts until By that time Stravinsky ‘s style had changed nearly beyond recognition, and although Stravinsky tried to recover the thread of the composition, the music of the latter two acts of Le rossignol is different and far more harmonically advanced than the music from the first act.


InStravinsky reconsidered the opera and decided to transform the musically homogenous second and third acts into a three-part symphonic poem. In order to facilitate this structural transformation, he dropped some portions of the opera’s score and repeated others to achieve a symphonically balanced form. Stravinsky divided the music of the two acts into three unequal parts: And in order to adjust the work to an ensemble without voices, he transferred the lines of the live Nightingale and the mechanical Nightingale to the solo flute and the solo violin.

The greater ranges of these instruments in turn allowed him to expand and extend the accompaniment’s textures so that they become more open and spacious.

The result is is neither a true symphonic poem — it’s still far too loosely constructed for that — nor a suite from the opera — it’s far too exclusive for that. Le chant du rossignol is a gorgeously colored, melodically extravagant, and harmonically adventurous work that sounds unlike anything else Stravinsky had ever written and anything else he was ever to compose.
