Among those in the audience was the impresario Sergei Diaghilev, who was about to debut his Ballets Russes in Paris. Alexandre Benois recalled that in he had suggested to Diaghilev the production of a Russian nationalist ballet,  an idea all the more attractive given both the newly awakened French passion for Russian dance and the expensive costs of staging opera.
The inspiration of mixing the mythical Firebird with the unrelated Russian tale of Koschei the Deathless possibly came from a popular child's verse by Yakov Polonsky , "A Winter's Journey" Zimniy put , , which includes the lines:.
And in my dreams I see myself on a wolf's back Riding along a forest path To do battle with a sorcerer-tsar Koschei In that land where a princess sits under lock and key, Pining behind massive walls.
There gardens surround a palace all of glass; There Firebirds sing by night And peck at golden fruit. Benois collaborated with the choreographer Michel Fokine, drawing from several books of Russian fairy tales including the collection of Alexander Afanasyev , to concoct a story involving the Firebird and the evil magician Koschei.
Diaghilev first approached the Russian composer Anatoly Lyadov in September to write the music. Stravinsky would later remark about working with Fokine that it meant "nothing more than to say that we studied the libretto together, episode by episode, until I knew the exact measurements required of the music.
Soon thereafter, Diaghilev began to organize private sneak previews of The Firebird for the press. French critic Robert Brussel, who attended one of these events, wrote in The composer, young, slim, and uncommunicative, with vague meditative eyes, and lips set firm in an energetic looking face, was at the piano.
But the moment he began to play, the modest and dimly lit dwelling glowed with a dazzling radiance. By the end of the first scene, I was conquered: by the last, I was lost in admiration.
The manuscript on the music-rest, scored over with fine pencillings, revealed a masterpiece. Critics praised the ballet for its integration of decor, choreography and music.
In Russia, however, reaction was mixed. While Stravinsky's friend Andrey Rimsky-Korsakov spoke approvingly of it, the press mostly took a dim view of the music, with one critic denouncing what he considered its "horrifying poverty of melodic invention.
What a work of genius this is! This is true Russia! One has to start somewhere. The ballet was revived in by Colonel Wassily de Basil 's company, the Ballets Russes de Monte-Carlo , in a production staged in London, using the original decor and costumes from Diaghilev's company.
The work was staged by George Balanchine for the New York City Ballet in with Maria Tallchief as the Firebird, with scenery and costumes by Marc Chagall , and was kept in the repertory until The lead role was danced by Michel Denard.
The Mariinsky Ballet performed the original choreography at Covent Garden in August , as part of their Fokine retrospective. The National Ballet of Canada created a version of the Firebird for television, occasionally rebroadcast, in which special effects were used to make it appear that the Firebird is in flight.
The ballet centers on the journey of its hero, Prince Ivan. While hunting in the forest, he strays into the magical realm of the evil Koschei the Immortal , whose immortality is preserved by keeping his soul in a magic egg hidden in a casket.
Ivan chases and captures the Firebird and is about to kill her; she begs for her life, and he spares her. As a token of thanks, she offers him an enchanted feather that he can use to summon her should he be in dire need.
Prince Ivan then meets thirteen princesses who are under the spell of Koschei and falls in love with one of them. The next day, Ivan confronts the magician and eventually they begin quarrelling.
When Koschei sends his minions after Ivan, he summons the Firebird. She intervenes, bewitching the monsters and making them dance an elaborate, energetic dance the "Infernal Dance".
Exhausted, the creatures and Koschei then fall into a deep sleep. While they sleep, the Firebird directs Ivan to a tree stump where the casket with the egg containing Koschei's soul is hidden.
Ivan destroys the egg, and with the spell broken and Koschei dead, the magical creatures that Koschei held captive are freed and the palace disappears.
All of the "real" beings, including the princesses, awaken and with one final hint of the Firebird's music though in Fokine's choreography she makes no appearance in that final scene on-stage , celebrate their victory.
The work is scored for a large orchestra with the following instrumentation: . Besides the complete minute ballet score of —10, Stravinsky arranged three suites for concert performance which date from , , and Instrumentation : essentially as per the original ballet.
Instrumentation : 2 flutes 2nd also piccolo ; 2 oboes 2nd also English horn for one measure ; 2 clarinets; 2 bassoons; 4 horns; 2 trumpets; 3 trombones; tuba; timpani; bass drum; cymbals; triangle; xylophone; harp; piano also opt.
This suite was created in Switzerland for conductor Ernest Ansermet. In , shortly before he acquired American citizenship, Stravinsky was contacted by Leeds Music with a proposal to revise the orchestration of his first three ballets in order to recopyright them in the United States.
The composer agreed, setting aside work on the finale of his Symphony in Three Movements. He proceeded to fashion a new suite based on the version, adding to it and reorchestrating several minutes of the pantomines from the original score.
Saviour Pirotta and Catherine Hyde's picture book, Firebird , is based on the original stories that inspired the ballet, and was published in to celebrate the ballet's centenary.
The influence of The Firebird has been felt beyond classical music. Stravinsky was an important influence on Frank Zappa , who used the melody from the Berceuse in his album Absolutely Free , in the Amnesia Vivace section of the "Duke of Prunes" suite along with a melody from The Rite of Spring.
During the s and s, the chord which opens the Infernal Dance became a widely used orchestra hit sample in music, specifically within new jack swing.
It was used in the opening ceremony of Sochi during the Cauldron Lighting segment. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Rimsky-Korsakov suggested to Stravinsky that he should not enter the Saint Petersburg Conservatory but continue private lessons in theory.
By the time of his father's death from cancer in , Stravinsky was spending more time studying music than law. In April , Stravinsky received a half-course diploma and concentrated on music thereafter.
They lived in the family's residence at 6 Kryukov Canal in Saint Petersburg before they moved into a new home in Ustilug, which Stravinsky designed and built, and which he later called his "heavenly place".
He wrote many of his first compositions there. By , Stravinsky had composed two more pieces, Scherzo fantastique , Op.
In February of that year, both were performed in Saint Petersburg at a concert that marked a turning point in Stravinsky's career.
In the audience was Sergei Diaghilev , a Russian impresario and owner of the Ballets Russes who was struck with Stravinsky's compositions.
He wished to stage a mix of Russian opera and ballet for the season in Paris, among them a new ballet from fresh talent that was based on the Russian fairytale of the Firebird.
The Firebird premiered at the Opera de Paris on 25 June to widespread critical acclaim and Stravinsky became an overnight sensation.
In September, they moved to Clarens , Switzerland where their second son, Sviatoslav Soulima , was born. The result was Petrushka , based the Russian folk tale featuring the titular character , a puppet, who falls in love with another, a ballerina.
It was Stravinsky's third ballet for Diaghilev, The Rite of Spring , that caused a sensation among critics, fellow composers, and concertgoers.
Based on an original idea offered to Stravinsky by Nicholas Roerich, the production features a series of primitive rituals celebrating the advent of spring, after which a young girl is chosen as a sacrificial victim to the sun god Yarilo, and dances herself to death.
Stravinsky's score contained many novel features for its time, including experiments in tonality, metre, rhythm, stress and dissonance.
Shortly after the premiere, Stravinsky contracted typhoid from eating bad oysters and he was confined to a Paris nursing home.
He left in July and returned to Ustilug. After her delivery, Nosenko was discovered to have tuberculosis and was confined to a sanatorium in Leysin in the Alps.
Stravinsky took up residence nearby, where he completed The Nightingale. Diaghilev agreed for the Ballets Russes to stage it.
In April , Stravinsky and his family returned to Clarens. The family lived there at three different addresses , until Stravinsky began to struggle financially in the late s as Russia and its successor, the USSR did not adhere to the Berne Convention , thus creating problems for Stravinsky to collect royalties for the performances of his pieces for the Ballets Russes.
In June , Stravinsky and his family left Switzerland for France, first settling in Carantec , Brittany for the summer while they sought a permanent home in Paris.
The Stravinskys accepted and arrived in September. In , Stravinsky signed a contract with the French piano manufacturing company Pleyel.
As part of the deal, Stravinsky transcribed most of his compositions for their player piano , the Pleyela. The company helped collect Stravinsky's mechanical royalties for his works and provided him with a monthly income.
In , he was given studio space at their Paris headquarters where he worked and entertained friends and acquaintances.
Stravinsky met Vera de Bosset in Paris in February ,  while she was married to the painter and stage designer Serge Sudeikin , and they began an affair that led to Vera leaving her husband.
In May , Stravinsky and his family moved to Anglet , a town close to the Spanish border. Diaghilev then requested orchestrations for a revival production of Tchaikovsky's ballet The Sleeping Beauty.
Despite some payments not being sent, Robert Craft believed that the patron was famed conductor Leopold Stokowski , whom Stravinsky had recently met, and theorised that the conductor wanted to win Stravinsky over to visit the US.
In September , Stravinsky bought a new home in Nice. Koussevitzky asked for Stravinsky to compose a new piece for one of his upcoming concerts; Stravinsky agreed to a piano concerto, to which Koussevitzky convinced him that he be the soloist at its premiere.
The funding of its production was largely provided by Winnaretta Singer, Princesse Edmond de Polignac , who paid 12, francs for a private preview of the piece at her house.
Stravinsky gave the money to Diaghilev to help finance the public performances. The premiere received a reaction, [ clarification needed ] which irked Stravinsky, who had started to become annoyed at the public's fixation towards his early ballets.
Stravinsky accepted and wrote Apollo , which premiered in From to , the Stravinskys lived in Voreppe , near Grenoble , southeastern France.
Katya, to whom he had been married for 33 years, died of tuberculosis three months later, in March During his later years in Paris, Stravinsky had developed professional relationships with key people in the United States: he was already working on his Symphony in C for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra  and he had agreed to deliver the prestigious Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard University during the —40 academic year.
The composer had decided that the warm Californian climate would benefit his health. Stravinsky had adapted to life in France, but moving to America at the age of 57 was a very different prospect.
Auden , Christopher Isherwood , Dylan Thomas. They shared the composer's taste for hard spirits — especially Aldous Huxley , with whom Stravinsky spoke in French.
The law in question merely forbade using the national anthem "as dance music, as an exit march, or as a part of a medley of any kind",  but the incident soon established itself as a myth, in which Stravinsky was supposedly arrested, held in custody for several nights, and photographed for police records.
Stravinsky's professional life encompassed most of the 20th century, including many of its modern classical music styles, and he influenced composers both during and after his lifetime.
Included among his students in the s was the American composer and music educator Robert Strassburg. In the early s his students included Robert Craft and Warren Zevon.
The Concerto in D premiered in It marked his first premiere in the US. American poet W. Auden and writer Chester Kallman worked on the libretto.
The opera premiered in and marks the final work during Stravinsky's neoclassical period. Craft later became Stravinsky's personal assistant and close friend, and encouraged him to compose serial music.
This began Stravinsky's third and final distinct musical period, the serial or twelve-tone period, which lasted until his death. In January , during his tour's stop in Washington, D.
Kennedy in honour of his eightieth birthday, where he received a special medal for "the recognition his music has achieved throughout the world".
Kennedy in , Stravinsky completed his Elegy for J. The two-minute work took the composer two days to write. By early , the long periods of travel had started to affect Stravinsky's health.
His case of polycythemia had worsened and his friends had noticed that his movements and speech had slowed. The crew asked Soviet authorities for permission to film Stravinsky returning to his hometown of Ustilug, but the request was denied.
In February , Stravinsky and Craft directed their own concert in Miami, Florida, the composer's first in that state.
However subsequently, upon doctor's orders, offers to perform that required him to fly were generally declined.
He had become increasingly frail and for the only time in his career, Stravinsky conducted while sitting down.
It was his final performance as conductor in his lifetime. In his diary, Craft wrote that he spoon-fed the ailing composer and held his hand: "He says the warmth diminishes the pain.
By , Stravinsky had recovered enough to resume touring across the US with him in the audience while Craft took to the conductor's post for the majority of the concerts.
In October , after close to three decades in California and being denied to travel overseas by his doctors due to ill health, Stravinsky and Vera secured a two-year lease for a luxury three bedroom apartment in Essex House in New York City.
Craft moved in with them, effectively putting his career on hold to care for the ailing composer. On 18 March , Stravinsky was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital with pulmonary edema where he stayed for ten days.
On 29 March, he moved into a newly furbished apartment at Fifth Avenue , his first city apartment since living in Paris in After a period of well being, the edema returned on 4 April and Vera insisted that medical equipment should be installed in the apartment.
The cause on his death certificate is heart failure. A funeral service was held three days later at Frank E.
Campbell Funeral Chapel. Stravinsky's output is typically divided into three general style periods: a Russian period, a neoclassical period, and a serial period.
The piece premiered 17 January in the Grand Hall of the Saint Petersburg Conservatory but was then lost until September , when it resurfaced in a back room of the city's Conservatoire.
The rediscovery generated much enthusiasm and, as a result, over 25 performances are scheduled in and beyond. Performances in St. Petersburg of Scherzo fantastique and Feu d'artifice attracted the attention of Serge Diaghilev , who commissioned Stravinsky to orchestrate two piano works of Chopin for the ballet Les Sylphides to be presented in the debut "Saison Russe" of his new ballet company.
Like Stravinsky's earlier student works, The Firebird continued to look backward to Rimsky-Korsakov not only in its orchestration, but also in its overall structure, harmonic organization, and melodic content.
The music itself makes significant use of a number of Russian folk tunes in addition to two waltzes by Viennese composer Joseph Lanner and a French music hall tune La Jambe en bois or The Wooden Leg.
In April , Stravinsky received a commission from Winnaretta Singer Princesse Edmond de Polignac for a small-scale theatrical work to be performed in her Paris salon.
The result was Renard , which he called "A burlesque in song and dance". In , he completed his last neoclassical work, the opera The Rake's Progress to a libretto by W.
Auden and Chester Kallman based on the etchings of William Hogarth. It premiered in Venice that year and was produced around Europe the following year before being staged in the New York Metropolitan Opera in In the s, Stravinsky began using serial compositional techniques such as dodecaphony , the twelve-tone technique originally devised by Arnold Schoenberg.
The first of his compositions fully based on such techniques was In Memoriam Dylan Thomas Agon —57 was the first of his works to include a twelve-tone series and Canticum Sacrum was the first piece to contain a movement entirely based on a tone row.
Stravinsky has been called "one of music's truly epochal innovators". Stravinsky's use of motivic development the use of musical figures that are repeated in different guises throughout a composition or section of a composition included additive motivic development.
This is a technique in which notes are removed from or added to a motif without regard to the consequent changes in metre. A similar technique can be found as early as the 16th century, for example in the music of Cipriano de Rore , Orlandus Lassus , Carlo Gesualdo and Giovanni de Macque , music with which Stravinsky exhibited considerable familiarity.
The Rite of Spring is notable for its relentless use of ostinati , for example in the eighth-note ostinato on strings accented by eight horns in the section "Augurs of Spring Dances of the Young Girls ".
The work also contains passages where several ostinati clash against one another. Stravinsky was noted for his distinctive use of rhythm, especially in the Rite of Spring The rhythmic structure of music became much more fluid and in a certain way spontaneous.
Browne, "Stravinsky is perhaps the only composer who has raised rhythm in itself to the dignity of art. Over the course of his career, Stravinsky called for a wide variety of orchestral, instrumental, and vocal forces, ranging from single instruments in such works as Three Pieces for Clarinet or Elegy for Solo Viola to the enormous orchestra of The Rite of Spring , which Aaron Copland characterized as "the foremost orchestral achievement of the 20th century".
The three ballets composed for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes call for particularly large orchestras:. Stravinsky displayed a taste in literature that was wide and reflected his constant desire for new discoveries.
Auden , T. Eliot , and medieval English verse. He also had an inexhaustible desire to explore and learn about art, which manifested itself in several of his Paris collaborations.
His interest in art propelled him to develop a strong relationship with Picasso, whom he met in , announcing that in "a whirlpool of artistic enthusiasm and excitement I at last met Picasso.
This exchange was essential to establish how the artists would approach their collaborative space in Pulcinella. The young Stravinsky was sympathetic to bourgeois liberalism and the aims of the Constitutional Democratic Party , even composing an anthem for the Russian Provisional Government , before shifting heavily towards the right following the October Revolution.
I know many exalted personages, and my artist's mind does not shrink from political and social issues.
Well, after having seen so many events and so many more or less representative men, I have an overpowering urge to render homage to your Duce.
He is the saviour of Italy and — let us hope — Europe. I told him that I felt like a fascist myself In spite of being extremely busy, Mussolini did me the great honour of conversing with me for three-quarters of an hour.
We talked about music, art and politics". Upon relocating to America in the s, Stravinsky again embraced the liberalism of his youth, remarking that Europeans "can have their generalissimos and Führers.
Leave me Mr. Truman and I'm satisfied. Stravinsky proved adept at playing the part of a 'man of the world', acquiring a keen instinct for business matters and appearing relaxed and comfortable in public.
His successful career as a pianist and conductor took him to many of the world's major cities, including Paris, Venice, Berlin, London, Amsterdam and New York and he was known for his polite, courteous and helpful manner.
Stravinsky was reputed to have been a philanderer and was rumoured to have had affairs with high-profile partners, such as Coco Chanel. He never referred to it himself, but Chanel spoke about the alleged affair at length to her biographer Paul Morand in ; the conversation was published thirty years later.
Despite these alleged liaisons, Stravinsky was considered a family man and devoted to his children. Stravinsky was a devout member of the Russian Orthodox Church during most of his life, remarking at one time that, "Music praises God.
Music is well or better able to praise him than the building of the church and all its decoration; it is the Church's greatest ornament. As a child, he was brought up by his parents in the Russian Orthodox Church.
Baptized at birth, he later rebelled against the Church and abandoned it by the time he was fourteen or fifteen years old.
After befriending a Russian Orthodox priest, Father Nicholas, after his move to Nice in , he reconnected with his faith.
He rejoined the Russian Orthodox Church and afterwards remained a committed Christian. In his late seventies, Stravinsky said:. I cannot now evaluate the events that, at the end of those thirty years, made me discover the necessity of religious belief.
I was not reasoned into my disposition. Though I admire the structured thought of theology Anselm 's proof in the Fides Quaerens Intellectum , for instance it is to religion no more than counterpoint exercises are to music.
I do not believe in bridges of reason or, indeed, in any form of extrapolation in religious matters.
I can say, however, that for some years before my actual "conversion", a mood of acceptance had been cultivated in me by a reading of the Gospels and by other religious literature.
If Stravinsky's stated intention was "to send them all to hell",  then he may have regarded the premiere of The Rite of Spring as a success: it resulted in one of history's most famous classical music riots , and Stravinsky referred to it on several occasions in his autobiography as a scandale.
The real extent of the tumult is open to debate and the reports may be apocryphal. In , Time magazine named Stravinsky as one of the most influential people of the century.
In the published article, Satie argued that measuring the "greatness" of an artist by comparing him to other artists, as if speaking about some "truth", is illusory and that every piece of music should be judged on its own merits and not by comparing it to the standards of other composers.
That was exactly what Jean Cocteau did when he commented deprecatingly on Stravinsky in his book, Le Coq et l'Arlequin. According to The Musical Times in All the signs indicate a strong reaction against the nightmare of noise and eccentricity that was one of the legacies of the war What for example has become of the works that made up the program of the Stravinsky concert which created such a stir a few years ago?
Practically the whole lot are already on the shelf, and they will remain there until a few jaded neurotics once more feel a desire to eat ashes and fill their belly with the east wind.
Bach , conceding that, "there is no denying the greatness of Stravinsky. It is just that he is not great enough.
The composer Constant Lambert described pieces such as L'Histoire du soldat as containing "essentially cold-blooded abstraction".
They are merely successions of notes that can conveniently be divided into groups of three, five, and seven and set against other mathematical groups" and he described the cadenza for solo drums as "musical purity He compared Stravinsky's choice of "the drabbest and least significant phrases" to Gertrude Stein 's 'Everyday they were gay there, they were regularly gay there everyday' "Helen Furr and Georgine Skeene", , "whose effect would be equally appreciated by someone with no knowledge of English whatsoever".
Adorno described Stravinsky as an acrobat and spoke of hebephrenic and psychotic traits in several of Stravinsky's works.
Contrary to a common misconception, Adorno didn't believe the hebephrenic and psychotic imitations that the music was supposed to contain were its main fault, as he pointed out in a postscript that he added later to his book.
Adorno's criticism of Stravinsky is more concerned with the "transition to positivity" Adorno found in his neoclassical works. This trick, however, soon exhausts itself.
In certain schizophrenics, the process by which the motor apparatus becomes independent leads to infinite repetition of gestures or words, following the decay of the ego.
Performances of his music were banned from around until , the year Nikita Khrushchev invited him to the USSR for an official state visit.
In , an official proclamation by the Soviet Minister of Culture, Yekaterina Furtseva , ordered Soviet musicians to "study and admire" Stravinsky's music and she made hostility toward it a potential offence.
Earlier writers, such as Aaron Copland , Elliott Carter , and Boris de Schloezer held somewhat unfavorable views of Stravinsky's works, and Virgil Thomson , writing in Modern Music a quarterly review published between and , could find only a common "'seriousness' of 'tone' or of 'purpose', 'the exact correlation between the goal and the means', or a dry 'ant-like neatness'".
In , Claude Debussy dedicated the third movement of his En blanc et noir for two pianos to Stravinsky. Igor Stravinsky found recordings a practical and useful tool in preserving his thoughts on the interpretation of his music.
As a conductor of his own music, he recorded primarily for Columbia Records , beginning in with a performance of the original suite from The Firebird and concluding in with the suite from the same ballet.
Although he made an appearance, the actual performance was conducted by Robert Craft. Stravinsky published a number of books throughout his career, almost always with the aid of a sometimes uncredited collaborator.
In his autobiography, Chronicle of My Life , which was written with the help of Walter Nouvel , Stravinsky included his well-known statement that "music is, by its very nature, essentially powerless to express anything at all.
A collection of Stravinsky's writings and interviews appears under the title Confidences sur la musique Actes Sud, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
