Igor Stravinsky (June 17th, 1882 - April 6, 1971) is regarded as one of the most important composers of the 20th century. Hisstyle swayed from classicroots, to pure experimentalism, and minimalism, but initially he headed the neoclassicism movement,particularly through ballets, The Rite of Spring, andthe Firebird suite. His father was a bass singer, but other than this, he was not completely induced by a household of pure musicians as manyother composers had. Heunderwent piano tuition at a young age and quickly learnt the art for the instrument, having masteredMendelssohn's Piano Concerto in G minor at thetender age of 14. Unlike other composers of the time, Stravinsky was somewhat of a celebrity, having always drawn vast gatherings at hispremieres, as well ascollaboration with larger than life artist, Pablo Picasso. Sometimes his pieces were felt under the clamour offist fights due to the often unconventionalapproach of his musical composition citing further conservatists to discount a lot ofhis music. « hide
