Even during the final decade of his life Igor Stravinsky remained a central figure in the musical world. In his eighties the creator of the Rite of Spring and The Rake's Progress continued to compose major works that aroused wide attention and controversy, and travelled the world conducting concerts of his music. Equipped with fine insight, a deep admiration for the composer and an uncanny gift for depicting the realities of old age, Miss Libram has given us an heartfelt and moving account of Stravinsky.
