The musical sources for Stravinsky’s Pulcinella are known because most of them were given to him by Diaghilev. Stravinsky wrote his earliest compositional sketches for this work directly on these manuscript pages—most of which are preserved at the Stravinsky archive of the Paul Sacher Stiftung. Other sketches can be found at the British Library. Interestingly, Mikhail Druskin expressed the idea that Mavra could be considered the Russian equivalent of Pulcinella in that Stravinsky based it on literary sources. For Pulcinella, Stravinsky’s collaborators were Picasso and Massine. For Mavra, Stravinsky used a text by Pushkin. The musical outcome for Mavra is much more complex than Pulcinella, as Stravinsky was experimenting more deliberately with contrapuntal models than in Pulcinella.
