IGOR STRAVINSKY

Stravinsky (1882) was born in Oranienbaum (now Lomonosov), Russia. He was the son of Fyodor Stravinsky, a seasoned opera singer at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg. Little Igor was very talented, but his father didn’t want him to become a professional musician. That’s why Igor was sent to the State University of Saint Petersburg to study law. Nevertheless, Igor continued composing, and he never finished University. In 1909, Igor finished his famous composition The Firebird Suite. After the success of this work, Le sacre du printemps followed, which marked the beginning of Stravinsky’s ‘French days’. His time in France ended abruptly, when his wife and daughter died of tuberculosis. Igor Stravinsky moved to the United States in 1939, where he continued working as a composer and conductor.
