    Stravinsky, Vol. 11: Violin Concerto; Ebony Concerto; The Flood is a classical music album that features compositions by the renowned Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. The album was released in 1993 and is part of a series of recordings that aim to provide a comprehensive collection of Stravinsky's works. 

    The album contains three pieces: the Violin Concerto in D Major, the Ebony Concerto, and The Flood. The Violin Concerto was composed in 1931 and is a neoclassical work that features Stravinsky's signature use of sharp rhythms and unexpected harmonic shifts. It is performed on the album by violinist Ilya Kaler and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Antoni Wit.

    The Ebony Concerto was composed in 1945 and was originally written for jazz clarinetist Woody Herman and his orchestra. The piece is a fusion of classical and jazz styles, and features a prominent clarinet solo. On the album, the piece is performed by clarinetist Wojciech Mrozek and the same orchestra and conductor as the Violin Concerto.

    The Flood is a chamber opera that Stravinsky composed in 1962. The piece is based on the story of Noah's Ark, and features a libretto by Robert Craft. The album contains a suite from the opera, which features a smaller ensemble and vocalists. It is performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus, under the direction of the composer himself.
