Produced in 1965, this is the definitive profile of the great Russian composer/conductor Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971). Over eighty 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.
Viewers will be treated to Stravinsky reminiscing about his remarkable life, travelling 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.”
This documentary provides a rare glimpse of the master and
his extraordinary life, through which moved such disparate figures as
Rimsky-Korsakov, Picasso, Rodin, Ravel, Debussy, and Dylan Thomas.
