Igor Stravinsky Quotes

Did you know about Igor Stravinsky?

By the late 1920s and 1930s the use by composers of neoclassicism had become widespread. Other pieces from the Russian period include: Le Rossignol (The Nightingale); Renard (1916); Histoire du soldat (The Soldier's Tale) (1918); and Les noces (The Wedding) (1923). From then until his wife's death in 1939 Stravinsky led a double life spending some time with his first family and the rest with Vera.
