Depends on how you define modern, John... I like Milhaud, Villa-Lobos, Francaix, Poulenc, Satie, Petrushka, Pulcinella among many others...  :D

Ah yes, but how do you feel about late period Stravinsky for example?

Let's say I prefer early Schoenberg.   :D

Seriously now, I believe Petrushka is a flawless masterpiece, one of my favorite pieces of music ever.  8)

It’s certainly one of his earlier masterpieces for sure. No love for the Neoclassical period?

If I love Pulcinella, where should I go next?

Orpheus, Apollo and The Fairy’s Kiss would be my next stops. Apollo is unusual for Stravinsky as it’s composed for a string orchestra only --- such a gorgeous work. The Fairy’s Kiss and Orpheus don’t get mentioned enough, but I find both of these works outstanding. The introduction to Orpheus alone is enough to melt one’s heart.

How do you need an ice breaker with Florestan? You've known him for years. .

Seems like Stravinsky does the trick...  ;)
