Explore the influential and avant-garde compositions of Igor Stravinsky
The Russian born composer, conductor and pianist is one of the best-known and most influential composers of the 20th Century and is widely regarded as a revolutionary by audiences and musicians alike. Stravinsky's composition, The Rite of Spring has now become arguably one most important compositions of the last century. However, it was largely misunderstood at the debut performance in 1913 and its progressive nature provoked such a disagreeable audience reaction that it almost caused a riot.
As well as Stravinsky’s other well-known orchestral compositions such as his ballet Petrushka and The Firebird he also composed some pieces (albeit with his modern approach to form and style) of more popular music such as Tango and Piano Rag Music. Alongside Stravinsky sheet music, Musicroom offers numerous scores and sheet music & songbooks of modern classical music and classical sheet music from all the historical periods.
