Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As perhaps the most influential composer of the twentieth century, Igor Stravinsky lived much of his long life on the public stage. But behind that public face was a very private man, at once father and husband, and patriarch of an extended but tightly knit Russian family.This two-part chronicle is written by his eldest son Theodore, and Theodore's wife Denise. These intimate memoirs take us to the very heart of the Stravinsky family home in the years leading up to the Second World War.This new volume also contains a wealth of family photographs, revealing the composer not as the often forbidding figure of the official photographic record, but as a husband and father at play and at work in the midst of a large and vibrant family.
