Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

: Fireworks

In 1908, Igor Stravinsky wrote a piece of music and proudly sent a copy to his mentor, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, but the package was returned unopened, with a shocking note attached. On this episode of Performance Today, hear the Los Angeles Philharmonic play the music that was returned to its sender: Fireworks, by Igor Stravinsky.
