Notes & Reviews:

This collection continues the survey of Stravinsky conducting his own works begun with the internationally acclaimed Music & Arts set. All but one of the performances here was given with the SWF Orchestra in Baden-Baden, trained by one of the great champions of modern music, Hans Rosbaud. The booklet contains extensive notes on "Stravinsky the Conductor" based on archival interviews with Stravinsky's long-time associate Robert Craft, the composers Elliott Carter, Virgil Thomson, and Lukas Foss, the musicologists Claudio Spies and Lawrence Morton, and the dancer and actress Vera Zorina.

The Southwest German Radio Orchestra. Concert Performances 1951- 1957. Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky 1882 -1971 was a Russian composer, considered by many in both the West and his native land to be the most influential composer of 20th century music. He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premières of his works.
