While many hundred thousands of pages have been written about Stravinsky, in this book -- the composer's first -- we hear from the man himself An Autobiography chronicles the first half-century of Stravinsky's life, all the while offering his opinions and 'abhorrences'. A Parsifal performance at Bayreuth? 'At the end of a quarter of an hour I could bear no more'. Nijinsky? 'The poor boy knew nothing of music'. Spanish folk music? 'Endless preliminary chords of guitar playing'.
