The «Symphonies for Wind Instruments», a key work in Stravinsky's oeuvre, is best known in the revised version that the composer prepared in 1947. For a long time the more richly colored original version of 1920 remained unpublished. This volume makes the most important autograph sources available to a wider public. It contains faithful reproductions of the composer's fair copy of the full score, finished in November 1920, and the short score of summer 1920, a working manuscript that sheds revealing light on Stravinsky's creative process.
