Great Composers: Igor Stravinsky


YorkIgor Fyodorovich Stravinsky, known as "Stravinsky", was a Russian-American composer, pianist and conductor who is most famous for his three ballets, The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring. He is considered one of the most important and popular composers of the 20th century.

Despite their musical backgrounds, his parents did not want him to follow in their footsteps. They asked him to go into law instead.

In 1925, Stravinsky first visited the United States. He finally moved there permanently in 1939 and later became an American citizen. He chose to settle in Los Angeles and he remained there for the rest of his life. During this time, he met Walt Disney. His composition, The Rite of Spring, was included in Disney's Fantasia.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
