“The last great father-figure of Western music” was how Leonard Bernstein eulogized Igor Stravinsky in 1972 before his homage concert in London a year after the composer’s death. “Stravinsky’s works,” he asserted, “sum up and embrace all of music itself from primitive folk art to highly sophisticated serialism, from rarefied church music to outspoken jazz.”

Bernstein’s Stravinsky performances include some of his most indelible interpretations, among them the celebrated recording of Le Sacre du printemps with the New York Philharmonic in 1958 that elicited the composer’s famous reaction: “Wow!” This recording, Classics Today wrote just a few years ago, still has “an excitement, spontaneity, and primal fury that no other version quite matches.”
