#7472: YOUNG PEOPLE'S CONCERT
1962-03-26, CBS, 00 min.
Leonard Bernstein, Igor Stravinsky

July 18th, 1958- March 26th, 1972

Series of concerts originating from Carnegie Hall in New York City. Beginning in 1962, they were broadcast from Lincoln Center in New York City. Leonard Bernstein conducted fifty three such televised performances until 1972. 

80th Birthday Tribute To Igor Stravinsky.

This 80th birthday tribute to the world famous composer opens with his "Greeting Prelude" which he wrote for his friend, conductor Pierre Monteux on Monteux's 80th birthday. The theme should sound familiar: its the "Happy Birthday" song.
In examining the panorama of Stravinsky's works, Leonard Bernstein points out the dominant features of each period: the big orchestral ballet scores,the smaller chamber works, the neoclassic forms and most recently, the atonal Stravinsky. 
During the first of these periods, Stravinsky wrote one of his best-known works, the ballet "Petrouchka," which he later arranged for the concert hall. Maestro Bernstein conducts the New York Philharmonic in a performance of the work, after first playing the themes of the important characters and telling the story of the forlorn puppet.
Roger Englander produced and directed this one-hour taped program.
