Music for a Sunday Afternoon (Series) (1967)

This series of one-hour broadcasts on the CBC started with a pair on musical documentaries from Britain. The other programs in the series were produced in Canada. They included a recital by Isaac Stern, produced by Pierre Morin; a performance of Les Sylphides by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and a Chopin recital by Brazilian pianist Bernardo Segall; a Beethoven concert by Glenn Gould, commemorating the 140th anniversary of the composer's death; and a performance of Mascagni's opera Cavalleria Rusticana, produced by Jean-Ives Landry.
