Igor Stravinsky Octet for Wind Instruments

Stravinsky recalled that he dreamt he was “…surrounded by a small group of instrumentalists……. playing bassoons, trombones, trumpets, a flute, and a clarinet. I awoke from this little concert in a state of great delight and anticipation, and the next morning began to compose the Octet.”

This chamber music gem is a world away from the “Rite of Spring” sound world of just a decade before and would be a harbinger of the neoclassic style that would dominate his next thirty years.
