Igor Stravinsky 1882-1971

Happy Birthday StravinskyGoogle reminded me that today is composer Igor Stravinsky's birthday, and I'm so glad they did. It was very interesting to read about his life and I even found a very special 9 minute video that any music lover will enjoy. It is one of those rare videos where the great Stravinsky conducts his own firebird – the Lullaby Suite at the age of 82. He lived to the age of 88. What I read on his long and very talented and creative life was found on Stravinsky’s Basic Repertoire List on Classical.net and much more information on Wikipedia’s article on Stravinsky.

Coincidentally ...

Wendell shares a birthday with Stravinsky. Today he turned 74.
