Sviatoslav Soulima Stravinsky[1] (23 September 1910 – 28 November 1994) was a Swiss-American pianist, composer and musicologist of Russian and Ukrainian descent. As a pianist, he was considered an important interpreter of the works of his father, Igor Stravinsky,[2] but as a composer he was overshadowed by his father.

Biography[edit]

Soulima Stravinsky was born in Lausanne, Switzerland,[1] in 1910, the son of Igor Stravinsky and Kateryna Nossenko, and the grandson of Fyodor Stravinsky. He studied piano with Isidor Philipp as well as theory and composition with Nadia Boulanger. He appeared in Paris in 1934 playing his father's Concerto for Piano and Winds, Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra and the Concerto for Two Pianos.[2] He recorded these works with his father in 1938.[1]

He played in London at the 1937 season of the Proms.[3]

Igor Stravinsky moved to the United States in 1939, but Soulima joined the French army and remained in Europe for nine more years.[1] He moved to the USA in 1948, making his American debut that year at the Red Rocks Festival in Colorado and his New York debut with the CBS Symphony Orchestra.[2]

In 1950, Soulima Stravinsky was appointed to the piano faculty of the School of Music of the University of Illinois, where he remained until 1978.[1] He continued his concerto solo career and began distinguishing himself as a composer, transcriber and editor. In addition to his many musical compositions, he wrote books on orchestration and the orchestra. His book on orchestration contains an excellent section on brass instruments including many unusual instruments.

In 1974, Stravinsky was awarded the "Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres" by the French Ministry of Cultural Affairs.[2]

He died in Sarasota, Florida in 1994, survived by his wife Francoise, his son John, and his sister Milene Marion.[1]

About nine months after his death, his widow Francoise found a previously unknown work amongst Soulima's papers - a Lamento for cello and piano. It was in incomplete form, but it was edited and performed for the first time before Francoise herself died.[2]

Works[edit]

  • The Art of Scales (24 Preludes), for piano
