Essay in French, English, German

Does any other composer of the 20th century offer such varied riches? If The Firebird, glowing with the iridescence of his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov, brought him his international breakthrough in 1910, The Rite of Spring sealed his fame and set him on the long path towards the terse archaism of Agon in 1957. Chameleon-like and with tireless creativity, Stravinsky kept pace with the aesthetic evolutions, convolutions and dislocations of his times. In his evocation of the Russia of history and prehistory, in the insolently virtuosic elegance of his pastiches, in his adaptations of Classical myths, in his rediscovery of his faith, and in his late conversion to serialism, he transformed every challenge into an opportunity.

The release of this edition marks 50 years since the death of Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971), the most influential composer of the 20th century.
• After he died in New York on 6th April 1971, the New York Times wrote:
“When the history of 20th‐century music comes to be written, Igor Stravinsky will occupy the most prominent position in the period from about 1910 to the beginning of World War II. More than any other composer, he put his mark on an entire generation. He was a shaper, a seminal force, a creator who was the symbol of the musical avant‐garde not only in the public eye but also … in the estimation of his fellow musicians.”
