Stravinsky wrote the symphony from —45 on commission by the Philharmonic Symphony Society of New York. The Symphony in Three Movements is considered as Stravinsky's first major composition after emigrating to the United States. InStravinsky had begun work on rescoring his ballet The Rite of Spring. Although the project was left incomplete, his revisit to this earlier composition appears to have influenced the symphony.
The ostinatos and Sir Eugene Goossen tactics of the last movement, for example, recalls the "Glorification of the Chosen One" and "Sacrificial Dance" from The Riteand some woodwind passages are reminiscent of the ballet's introduction.
On the other hand, there are passages forecasting the opera The Rake's ProgressSecond Movement - Franz Schubert, Strasbourg Festival Orchestra - Symphony No9 The Great/La Grande/D the openings of the slow movement and the finale. Stravinsky, who rarely acknowledged outside inspirations for his music, referred to the composition as his 'war symphony'.
The first movement was inspired by a documentary on Japanese scorched earth tactics in 1st Movement - Overture (Allegro) - Stravinsky* - Woody Herman And His Orchestra. The third movement deals with footage of German soldiers goosestepping and the Allied forces' mounting success.
Material is drawn from projects that Stravinsky had abandoned or reorganized. The piano 's presence in the first movement stems from a piano concerto that was left incomplete. Music for harp is prominent in the second movement, using themes he had written for the film adaptation of Franz Werfel 's novel The Song of Bernadette.
Stravinsky was initially informally approached for the writing of the film score. On 15 February he started writing music for the "Apparition of the Virgin" scene.
In the event, no contract was ever signed with him, and the project went to Alfred Newmanwho won an Oscar. In contrast to Stravinsky's earlier Symphony in Cthe Symphony in Three Movements is much more turbulent and chromatic. While the Symphony in C is based on abstract ideas, his later symphony makes use of pressing social concerns. From a purely musical standpoint, the Symphony hearkens back to Stravinsky's earlier styles of composition while remaining an outstanding achievement of neoclassicism.
