The first of 2 entries for Stravinsky in the Ultimate Hall of Fame. This has appeared in every chart and reached its highest position of 170 in 2011.

Igor Stravinsky was only 27 when he wrote the complex ballet music for The Firebird. The premiere in 1910 cemented Stravinsky's position as one of the period's most exciting and dynamic composers. Today, the ballet remains in repertoire across the world and the concert suite is regularly performed, too.
