Program notes

During a memorable farewell concert in London in 1965, Stravinsky the orchestra conductor conducts Stravinsky the composer.

This film invites us to relive an historical concert: Igor Stravinsky's farewell performance at the Royal Festival Hall of London in 1965, at the age of eighty-three. To stop the recalls and applause, the composer-conductor finally comes back on stage wearing his coat and hat.
