Igor Stravinsky (1882 - 1971) was one of music's truly epochal innovat-
ors; no other composer of the twentieth century exerted such a per-
vasive influence or dominated his art in the way that Stravinsky occu-
pied the center of the musical universe for five decades. Aside from
purely technical considerations such as rhythm and harmony, the
most important hallmark of Stravinsky's style is, indeed, its changing
face. Emerging from the spirit of late Russian nationalism and ending
his career with a thorny, individual language steeped in twelve-tone
principles, Stravinsky assumed a number of aesthetic guises
throughout the course of his development while always retaining a
distinctive, essential identity. Stravinsky's triad of early ballets--The
Firebird (1909 - 10), Petrushka (1910 - 11), and most importantly, The
Rite of Spring (1911 - 13)--did more to establish his reputation and to
fix his name in the pantheon of musical luminaries than any of his oth-
er works. The Rite of Spring aptly displays the elements which have
come to be most strongly associated with Stravinsky's music: a force-
ful, even savage, unpredictable employment of rhythmic patterns, an
effectively idiosyncratic sense of instrumental color and chord spacing, and a highly personal
melodic sense based on the propagation of small cells. Stravinsky's jazz-inflected essays of the
1910s and 1920s--notably, Ragtime (1918) and The Soldier's Tale (1918)--gave way to one of the
composer's most influential aesthetic turns. The neoclassical tautness of works as diverse as
the ballet Pulcinella (1919 - 20), the Symphony of Psalms (1930) and, decades later, the opera The
Rake's Progress (1948 - 51) made a widespread impact and had an especial influence upon the
fledgling school of American composers that looked to Stravinsky as its primary model. By the
1950s, Stravinsky had begun to develop an interest in the techniques of serialism, from which he
had long and assiduously distanced himself. Characteristically, though, he made novel use of
such principles in his own music, producing works in a highly original vein: Movements (1958 -
59) for piano and orchestra, Variations: Aldous Huxley in Memoriam (1963), and the Requiem
Canticles (1965 - 66) are among the most striking. -- All Music Guide
