Stravinsky in Rehearsal from 1947

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min
Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFK

In 1947, William Malloch, possessed by a sense of history, recorded Igor Stravinsky rehearsing his new revision of his “Symphonies of Wind Instruments in Memory of Debussy”. Malloch comments upon and plays this historical recording, which was broadcast by permission of the composer himself. The sound is antique but the picture of what Stravinsky is striving for musically comes through clearly enough. Malloch’s three part series on Stravinsky (of which this is the second part) won runner-up honors in the Eighth Annual Armstrong Awards, the seventh national award his programs have won.
