The Revolutionary Composer
Bold and innovative. Known for his rhythmic complexity and groundbreaking ballet scores.
My music is best understood by children and animals.
Igor Stravinsky was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor. His music underwent dramatic transformations, from the avant-garde primitivism of his early works to the neoclassical elegance of his later compositions. Stravinsky's bold experimentation forever changed the course of 20th-century music.
