Stravinsky's hugely popular work strides 68 places up the chart
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.
