Stravinsky: The Second Exile

UK Publisher: Jonathan Cape

This is the second and final volume of Stephen Walsh’s magesterial biography of Igor Stravinsky, spanning the years from 1934 to the composer’s death in 1971. The first volume of this biography, A Creative Spring, was received with glowing praise for its insight, narrative skill and readability. The period covered in this new book, beset as it is with myths and misconceptions, is handled with even greater authority. Carefully weighed, eloquent, packed with rich and fascinating detail, it casts a brilliant new light on one of the greatest artists of our time.
