Widely regarded as the greatest composer of the twentieth-century, Igor Stravinsky shot to international fame following the Paris premieres of his 1910-13 Russian ballet trilogy that culminated with The Rite of Spring. With France more than any other country playing a decisive role in launching his career, Stravinsky became the undisputed icon of the Parisian avant-garde, exploiting an unparalleled mediatic flair for self-promotion at a time when media, communications, and networking exploded. This might explain the breadth of his significance for French music and why, more than any other of his prestigious colleagues, he gives way to a dizzying array of interconnections of various modes and in various milieux. Taking stock of recent developments in Stravinsky and twentieth-century French music research, this substantial volume offers a new critical assessment of Stravinsky’s multifaceted relationships with French culture and society, as well as the response of French culture to his music, during the years he gravitated around France (1910-1939). Twenty essays by internationally recognised and emerging scholars are brought together by contributing editors François de Médicis, Caroline Rae and Danick Trottier to present new perspectives on the composer’s reception, interactions and legacy in France.
