Notes and Editorial Reviews

History united the names of two geniuses, Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev, in one of the brightest cultural phenomena of the previous century: the Russian Seasons in Paris. Stravinsky’s three Russian ballets — The Firebird, Petrushka, and The Rite of Spring — were fruits of their collaborative creative process. In aggregate, these three ballets demonstrate the intensity of the composer’s creative evolution and acutely unexpected stylistic “twists” that would be characteristic of him in the future. - Melodiya History united the names of two geniuses, Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev, in one of the brightest cultural phenomena of the previous century: the Russian Seasons in Paris.
