Igor Stravinsky (1882 -- 1971) is widely regarded as this century's most versatile and adventurous composer. He began his dazzling career in association with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, but three years after his first brilliant success with The Firebird he provoked the most riotous first night of the century with The Rite of Spring. Subsequently, his music underwent many stylistic changes as public and private pressures drove him from Russia to Switzerland, France and finally Hollywood.
