    This is Julian Bream playing for Stravinsky. Very interesting though.

    Oops. I got them mixed up. That was interesting. Did you see how he got the bum's rush at the end?

    Haha, yes, poor man. Interesting that classical music, which unquestionably has the best musicians, also has the most humility and good manners. He didn't sound the tiniest note of protest. Although there was obviously an important event happening, so it was perfectly fair to ask him to move.

    Excellent indeed! Thanks for posting! Although it looks like a fascinating conversation between two masters instead of Dora Kuhn. I love Stravinsky's humility and patience the the exhuberant Bream.

    I wonder if she is a one trick pony. I only see her referenced to Khatchy...

    Some of these artists are from far flung places were video quality as in hers, aren't that great! Doubtful she'd be a one trick pony tackling such a work. No one would hire her for concerts.
