Stravinsky: Chronicle of a
The standard biographical source for the last decades of Stravinsky's life and a unique trove of primary material on twentieth-century cultural and intellectual history, now again available, in expanded form. For nearly the last twenty-five years of Igor Stravinsky's incredibly full life, the noted musician, conductor, and writer Robert Craft was his closest colleague and friend, a trusted member of his household, and an important part of all of the composer's activities. Throughout these years, Craft kept a detailed diary, impressive in its powers of observation and characterization. That diary forms the basis for Stravinsky: Chronicle of a Friendship, now released in a substantially revised and expanded new edition. This edition includes nearly twice as many illustrations and more than 35% entirely new textual material. In addition, Craft adds an evocative "Postlude" in which he summarily brings matters forward to the death of Vera Stravinsky, several years after that of the Maestro. Anyone interested in Stravinsky and his music, in Stravinsky's relationship with Craft, and in many of the luminaries and landmarks of twentieth-century Western cultural history will find this book essential reading. Here are revealing glimpses of Stravinsky's friendships and encounters with some o...

Memories and Commentaries: New One-Volume Edition Compiled and Edited by Robert
For the first time in one volume--the celebrated Stravinsky and Craft ConversationsFew would dispute that Igor Stravinsky was the greatest composer of the twentieth century. Conductor and writer Robert Craft was his closest colleague and friend, and for over twenty-one years he lived with the Stravinskys in their Hollywood home. In the early 1950s he accompanied the composer on his concert tours, and from the mid-1950s to Stravinsky's death in 1971 he co-conducted his concerts. Together Stravinsky and Craft published five acclaimed collections known as the Conversations series, which sprung from informal talks between the two men. In this newly edited and re-structured one-volume version, Craft brings Stravinsky's reflections on his childhood, his family life, professional associates, and personal relationships into sharper focus and places the major compositions in their cultural milieux. The Conversations books are the only published writing attributed to Stravinsky that are actually "by him" in terms of fidelity to his thoughts and opinions, making this volume required reading for all fans and students of Stravinsky's music.

Down a Path of Wonder: Memoirs of Stravinsky, Schoenberg and Other Cultural
Robert Craft (1923-2015) is best known for his close association with Stravinsky and friendship with Schoenberg, but he also came into contact with many of Stravinsky's friends and collaborators, including George Balanchine, WH Auden and Aldous Huxley. Craft's memoirs of these figures form the core of this volume, which brings together 44 of his essays on music and literature, complemented by three colourful travel diaries focusing on Cambodia, Italy and Seville.
American Stravinsky: The Composer, Vol. 4 (Dumbarton Oaks Concerto / Agon / Circus Polka / Star-Spangled
I think Stravinsky's arrangement of The Star-Spangled Banner for male chorus is reason enough to purchase this volume, entitled American Stravinsky, in the Music Masters series of historic Stravinsky recordings. I don't care for the pseudo-Baroque Dumbarton Oaks concerto--although Reich fans might disagree with me. But everyone loves the fabulous Agon, the master's final ballet score: pure, invigorating, inevitable. --Joshua Cody

Finally, there is priceless film of Stravinsky himself in this unique portrait.A wholly wonderful film... much of this portrait is like a miraculous image, filled with the sense of Stravinsky as man and musician, above all as Russian and believer.-Paul Griffiths, The TimesAll the virtues of the film seemed to stem from Stravinsky himself and no higher tribute could be paid to the technical virtuosity of Palmer's film, which achieved miracles of compression, lucidity and respect. - The Financial TimesAn extraordinary portrait; this superb British documentary provided an excellent, thorough overview of Stravinsky and his music.-The New...

Conversations with Igor
Conversations with Igor Stravinsky is the first of the celebrated series of conversation books in which Stravinsky, prompted by Robert Craft, reviewed his long and remarkable life. The composer brings the Imperial Russia of his childhood vividly into focus, at the same time scanning what were at the time the brave new horizons of Boulez and Stockhausen with extraordinary acuity. Stravinsky answers searching questions about his musical development and recalls his association with Diaghilev and the Russian Ballet. There are sympathetic and extraordinarily illuminating reminiscences of such composers as Debussy and Ravel ('the only musicians who immediately understood Le Sacre du Printemps'), while mischievous squibs are directed at others, most notably perhaps against Richard Strauss, all of whose operas Stravinsky wished 'to admit ... to whichever purgatory punishes triumphant banality'. The conversations are by no means confined to musical subjects, ranging uninhibitedly across all the arts: Stravinsky gives unforgettable sketches of Ibsen, Rodin, Proust, Giacometti, Dylan Thomas and T S Eliot. 'The conversations between Igor Stravinsky and Robert Craft are unique in musical history. The penetration of Craft's questions and the patience and detail of Stravinsky's answers combine ...
Stravinsky in Hollywood
STRAVINSKY IN HOLLYWOOD explores the short-lived film career of this legendary composer, it is the story of his trials and tribulations with the Hollywood Studios, the story of an old school European artist knocking heads with the brash New World. Igor Stravinsky lived in the heart of Hollywood from 1939 until shortly before his death in 1971 - longer than in any other single place. He came expecting to find lucrative work composing for the movies. The film uses a combination of existing archival footage (some of it never before seen), interviews with Stravinsky and his assistant Robert Craft. The documentary includes scenes from several big studio films of the 40s brought together for the first time with the music which Stravinsky wrote for them.
