IGOR STRAVINSKY - THE FIREBIRD


"The Russian-born pianist, composer and conductor Igor Stravinsky died on this day in 1971. 'The Firebird' was the most frequently performed ballet in the 20th century after Tchaikovsky's 'Swan Lake'. Together with 'Petrushka' and 'The Rite of Spring', it established his international compositional career."

DG picked this wonderful recording as the album of the day: DG.lnk.to
