Stravinsky Igor Stravinsky (Public Domain)

Host Bob Sherman remembers Igor Stravinsky. Sherman plays an interview with conductor Pierre Monteux reminiscing about Stravinsky from April 5, 1955.

A highlight is Stravinsky himself on WQXR in 1949 talking about his ballet Orpheus, with performances by the Chicago Symphony.
