Stravinsky Conducts Stravinsky 1946 – Past Daily Weekend Gramophone

Something slightly out of the ordinary this weekend. Igor Stravinsky appeared frequently on the CBS Radio program Invitation To Music in the 1940s. Just one of the many programs on the air at that time which concentrated on new Classical music or music not all that familiar to audiences.
I don’t believe either of these two performances have been reissued, since there are so many studio versions featuring Stravinsky conducting his own work. But still, a nice addition to the Stravinsky collection.
