Notes and Editorial Reviews
Produced in 1965, this is the definitive profile of the great Russian composer/conductor, Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971). Over 80 years old at the time of filming, Stravinsky was full of the joy of life, with an alert memory for people and events in music, literature, and art. Viewrs will be treated to Stravinsky reminiscing about his remarkable life, traveling with his wife aboard ship en route to Hamburg and conducting the CBC Symphony Orchestra and the Festival Singers of Toronto in a recording of his Symphony of Psalms. A rare glimpse of the master and his extraordinary life, throughout which moved such legendary figures as Rimsky-Korsakov, Picasso, Rodin, Debussy, and Dylan Thomas.
Approx. 50 minutes, CANADA, 1965, Black & White.
