High-class tribute to the "inventor of modernity": The Stravinsky Edition on the 50th Anniversary of his Death If one surveys the musical history of the 20th century, which is so rich in innovations and revolutions, then one quickly comes upon a personality who unites all the great currents of this time: Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) covered such a wide artistic path as hardly any other composer. From his years as a pupil of the Russian Romantic Rimsky-Korssakoff to the scandal of his ballet Le Sacre du Printemps, which shook the art world, to the experimentation with neo-classicism, the combination of classical music and jazz, twelve-tone tonality, and that in all musical genres: Stravinsky is considered both the "inventor of modernism" and its first perfecter. To mark the 50th anniversary of his death on April 6, 2021, Warner Classics is releasing the 23-CD Stravinsky Edition, featuring famous works worth discovering in top-class reference recordings by international conductors, soloists and ensembles, including historical recordings with Stravinsky as a performer. The recordings were made between 1928 and 2019. - Three CDs document Stravinsky as pianist and conductor of his own works - Almost a complete century of top-class Stravinsky recordings (1928-2019) - Reference recordings of the greatest classical artists of the 20th century - 64-page trilingual booklet, CD wallet illustrated with paintings by Wassily Kandinsky - Complete overview of the most famous and discoverable compositions of all genres, from symphonies, vocal music and incidental music to chamber music, concertos, piano works and transcriptions
