The Music of Igor Stravinsky
Osher (50+). In this course we study the music of Stravinsky.
About this course:Igor Stravinsky is one of the most important composers within classical music culture. He rose to fame after his earliest works, Firebird, Petrushka, and Rite of Spring, were premiered by the Ballets Russes in Paris. The last of these works would prove scandalous yet influential and would have a lasting impact upon compositional practice during the 20th century. In this course, we study the music of Stravinsky from the early days of his career in Russia to his neoclassical period and beyond.
