Igor Stravinsky was a composer, pianist, and conductor. “He is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music. Time Magazine named Stravinsky as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. He first achieved international fame with three ballets: The Firebird (1910), Petrushka (1911/1947), and The Rite of Spring (1913).
