Prokofiev’s Symphonie classique sounds like Haydn and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella mirrors Pergolesi – except they are no mere imitations, since these early-20th-century upstarts also thumb their nose at tradition. You can also enjoy musical masquerades when the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Daniele Gatti perform on 24 August. Kindly answer our prize question by Friday and you may win one of 3 pairs of tickets to one of the wittiest programs in our “Summer of Humor” in Lucerne.

In his piece Pucinella, Igor Stravinsky takes on the topic of the commedia dell’arte. The title hero – as well as Arlecchino, Truffaldino, and Pantalone – belongs to this group of cunning and wily servants. What is the Italian word for these three “subordinates”?
a. Pagliacci
b. Zanni
c. Bastardi
d. Commedianti
e. Perfidi

Please send the letter corresponding to what you think is the correct answer to the following address: Responses must be received no later than Friday, 21 August 2015, by 11:00 a.m.

From among those who have sent in the correct response we will randomly chose 3 people who will each receive a pair of tickets to the concert by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra under Daniele Gatti this coming Monday, 24 August 2015. The winners will be notified immediately afterward. All decisions are final.
