 NotesThe music was commissioned for the 30th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Woods Bliss, well-known patrons of the arts, whose house, museum and gardens at Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown had provided the setting for many important functions and entertainments. Stravinsky was unable to conduct the first performance in America. At his express wish, the eminent teacher Nadia Boulanger was invited to take his place and the concerto was played for the first time in the great hall of Dumbarton Oaks under her direction.
