Repertoire Note  
The Stravinsky scholar Roman Vlad finds the Concerto in D "a light, vivacious work, . . . in the nature of pure entertainment or even escapism. The musical discourse trips along with gay, carefree lilt." But Jerome Robbins, cueing on the jabbing accents and heady velocity, turned it into a grim and violent ballet, "The Cage."
