- (1882–1971), Russian-born composer, resident in the US from 1939; full name Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky. He made his name with the ballets The Firebird (1910) and The Rite of Spring (1913); both shocked Paris audiences with their irregular rhythms and frequent dissonances. Stravinsky later developed a neoclassical style typified by The Rake’s Progress (opera, 1948–51) and experimented with serialism in Threni.
