Stravinsky's Symphony in E-flat, Op. 1

Before the famous ballets and operas, Stravinsky cut his teeth on a great, mostly traditional symphony that is so melodic and expressive, you'll wonder who composed it. Oliver's engaging, informative commentary and musical illustrations by the SFCO will reveal the young Stravinsky at work, hitting his marks and learning the craft of musical composition, followed by a complete performance of the first movement of this rarely heard work
