    The Symphonies of Wind Instruments (French title: Symphonies d'instruments ŗ vent) is a concert work written by Igor Stravinsky in 1920, for an ensemble of woodwind and brass instruments. The piece is in one movement, lasting about 9 minutes. It is dedicated to the memory of Claude Debussy, who died in 1918, and was premiered in London on June 10, 1921, conducted by Serge Koussevitzky.

    A piano reduction by Arthur Louriť was published in 1926 (White 1979, 292), a full score appearing only after Stravinsky re-orchestrated the work in 1947 (Howe 2006).

    Stravinsky is one of those odd composers for me. The symphonies of wind instruments is a favorite of mine along with several more of his works but he also wrote music which I donít like at all. He was one of those composers whose music varied a lot throughout his career. Not that I have a problem with his music being so different but that some works just donít designate with me at all while others I simply love.

    I got the Svend Nielsen CD with Carillons, Nightfall and Sinfonia concertante last spring. Busted it out the other night and have been wrapping my sweaty ears around Carillons for a few days.
