Petroushka: A burlesque in four scenes Stravinsky, Igor, 1882-1971


IGOR STRAVINSKY / PETROUSHKA / A BURLESQUE IN FOUR SCENES, "Hawkes Pocket Scores, no. 574." Entry 83i is a reprint of Serge Koussevitzky's edition (Berlin: Russischer Musikverlag, 1912 [later, Paris: Édition Russel]. 83i's outer cover page is signed, upper right, in black ink. His autograph markings for revisions appear on seventy­-four pages in ink, in pencil, and in reds, blues, and greens. "PETROUSHKA" - ­lettered in upper case in black ink on the spine - is probably also in Stravinsky's hand, because its first six and last three letters are spaced similarly to the initial six and final three of "PETROUCHKA" [sic] lettered in ink on the spine of his autograph score in his library, formerly at 1218 North Wetherly, Hollywood. A small sticker, "BROUDE BROS. / Music / NEW YORK," is affixed to the title page of Entry 83i.
