Read full description of the books Petrouchka: Score:Growing up during the sixties, identifying with the counterculture and attending a residential college, I have had virtually no experience with dating if by that word one means inviting a presumably romantically available person whom one barely knows out to an event. The one great exception, probably the first, was during the first year at Union Theological Seminary in New York.
I lived in Hastings Hall on Broadway, a dormitory occupied not only by fellow seminarians, but also by students from Columbia University, Jewish Theological Seminary and the Manhattan School of Music. My neighbor across the hall, Ragin, was a Norwegian attending the latter. Being Norwegian myself and imagining her to be lonely and lost allowed me to be more forward with her than I would normally be with any even remotely attractive single woman. Thus an acquaintanceship happened.
I think it was her idea to go to see Petrushka at Lincoln Center. She had access to tickets through her school. I had no particular interest in Stravinsky, but was intrigued by the idea of sseing a live, professional ballet. We went.
It was terrible! It was a modern production without sets and without superscript. I was quite bored. She seemed pleased enough, but then she was infinitely more prepared than me to understand what was going on. We never went out again. She left at the end of the semester, returning to Norway to become the world-famous violinist she is today.
Read information about the authorIgor Fyodorovich Stravinsky was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor. He is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music.
He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. He became a naturalized US citizen in 1946. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works.
He also published a number of books throughout his career, almost always with the aid of a collaborator, sometimes uncredited. In his 1936 autobiography, Chronicles of My Life, written with the help of Walter Nouvel, Stravinsky included his infamous statement that "music is, by its very nature, essentially powerless to express anything at all."
