Fun with Google Books, Part 1

I’ve been happily exploring all the free stuff available on Google Books, including complete runs of out of print magazines like Life.   Check out what Igor Stravinsky used to do when he visited his buddy Charles Chaplin in 1937. Of interest, Stravinsky is described primarily as “the famous conductor,” although in all fairness to Life, they mention an upcoming concert in Manhattan where three of his ballet scores will be performed.

Rather interesting that the Life caption refers to Stravinsky as the famous *conductor*.

He did do a lot of conducting of his own works – I think he worked hard to make sure he would conduct as many performances of his work that he could.
