Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky
(17 June 1882 – 6 April 1971) was a Russian, later naturalized French, and then naturalized American composer, pianist, and conductor. He is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works. Stravinsky's compositional career was notable for its stylistic diversity. He first achieved international fame with three ballets commissioned by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev and performed by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes (Russian Ballets): The Firebird (1910), Petrushka (1911/1947), and The Rite of Spring (1913).
