Leonard Bernstein, Tribute to Stravinsky – With Michel Béroff The Historic Stravinsky Memorial Concert, 8 April 1972

About

This memorial concert took place at the Royal Albert Hall in April 1972 on the first anniversary of the death of Igor Stravinsky, "the last great father-figure of Western music," according to Leonard Bernstein.

Bernstein was a regular visitor to the UK, performing with a number of London orchestras, but this glamorous concert – a memorial tribute to Stravinsky given in the presence of the United Kingdom's Prime Minister Edward Heath – was a particularly special event. Bernstein called it an homage to Stravinsky's universality and chose the three featured masterpieces for their suggestion of "the extraordinary range of his art."
