Ingenious Igor Stravinsky

Stravinsky was born in Dranienbaum in 1882 and died in New York in 1971. Igor was a Russian-born composer, conductor, writer and pianist. In 1901, he attended St. Petersburg University with the intent of studying law, but gradually he turned his attention to music. He eventually became Rimsky-Korsakov’s student in 1903.

The premiere of Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite (1911) made him world famous. Petrushka (1911) and The Rite of Spring (1913) further helped in solidifying his status as a leading figure in avant-garde music.

Rhythmic innovation was and still is an important aspect in Stravinsky’s style. He wrote for many genres and was not afraid to experiment and incorporate different styles of writing, such as surrealism, into his compositions.
