This publication was enhanced by the research of the late Barry Brook and by an appendix of song texts in the Neapolitan dialect by Dale Monson.Numerous tables in this publication provide efficient access to the entries on each page of the facsimile: according to the source groups, sketches, sources and sketches in order of the sources and sources and sketches in order of the published edition.In her commentary Maureen Carr discusses: the genesis of the idea for Pulcinella, the sources chosen by Stravinsky and those that he discarded, the sketches, as well as analytical perspectives on Stravinsky¿s compositional process for this work. In addition to the musical sources and sketches, other documents in this volume, such as a preliminary outline of the work in the hand of the painter, Pablo Picasso (Musée Picasso) and a more detailed scenario written out by the choreographer, Leonide Massine (Basel), will help scholars to understand the nature of the collaboration among these luminaries [the composer Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971), the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso (1881¿1973), the Russian choreographer Léonide Massine (Miasin; 1895¿1979), and the Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev (1872¿1929)] that resulted in this astonishing dramatic work for dance and song.
