The Stravinksy Connection....?


One member on this forum claimed that just before Ivor Stravinsky died in 1971 he had intended to write a piece for the Early Music Consort. How true this is I do not know. Perhaps, someone will know apart from my original contact....

I can remember reading something about this at the time.  Whether the fact that Munrow met Stravinsky and was sitting beside him at a concert of one of his works would need to be confirmed but I can remember something along those lines.  What I can recall was that Munrow was astonished to see Stravinsky following the work reading the score and, instead of following the melody he was following in an inner part, which to Stravinsky was more logical.
