Igor Stravinsky Conducts Firebird

c

MUSIC Thursday

This is one of those rare videos, from 1965, where you see the master conducting his creation. In this case, the great Igor Stravinsky conducts his own Firebird Ballet Suite: Lullaby and Finale (1945 version), at age of 82. Playing the piece is the New Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall in London, England
