Happy Birthday to Igor Stravinsky

Igor Stravinsky ? When i saw this front page in google search, i also wonder who is Igor Stravinsky ? According to Wikipedia, Igor Stravinsky was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor, considered by many to be one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music.

He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works.

Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky was born in Oranienbaum, Tsarist Russia on 17 June, 1882. His father, Fyodor, was a famous opera singer in the St. Petersburg Imperial Opera. Determined that his children would have more secure professional lives, he insisted that young Igor prepare for a less chancy career, so Igor began his studies in law at university in 1901. In 1902 Stravinsky met Rimsky-Korsakov (one of Russian's leading nationalist composers), and on his father's death later that same year, he began his formal musical composition studies.
