Biografía

Igor Stravinsky: the Russian influence

Igor Stravinsky, an unclassifiable composer, was accustomed to music from a very early age in particularly thanks to his father who was a famous bass at the St. Petersburg Opera. From Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, one of his teachers, he retained orchestral luxuriance and his first works were imbued with the shimmering colours of Russian folklore. His encounter with Diaghilev, who commissioned The Firebird ballet (1910), would determine the young composer’s future. Stravinsky began to travel and his insolent and disconcerting art made a name for him beyond the Russian frontiers.
