Igor Stravinsky – Symphonies of Wind Instruments (1947 version)


The work was first heard in London in 1921, when Koussevitsky conducted it at the Queens Hall. Early performances seem to have been unsatisfactory, though, and the work’s importance was slow to be recognised. In 1947 Stravinsky published a revised edition, with slight alterations to the instrumentation and layout of the music. This revised edition is performed here.
