When the young American conductor Robert Craft wrote to Igor Stravinsky in 1947, he had no idea that he would spend nearly a quarter of a century as the composer's personal assistant and a close friend. They worked together on a series of books which became collectively known as "the conversations". In a series of six talks with writer, critic and broadcaster Stephen Walsh , Robert Craft looks back on his relationship with one of the most creative musical minds of this century.
1: Symphonies and Manuscripts (1947-1951) The first conversation examines the beginning of their friendship, from
Craft's first letter about the Symphonies of Wind
Instruments to his work with Stravinsky on his opera The Rake's Progress. Including excerpts from the Symphonies of Wind
Instruments, Orpheus, The Rite of Spring, the Mass and the Symphony in C. A Soundscape production
