The Big City

”The more susbtantial an individual’s aesthetic experience is, the sounder his taste, the sharper his moral focus, the freer—though not necessarily the happier—he is.."

Igor Stravinsky was born this day in 1882. Imagine a world where one of the greatest practitioners of an abstract art was also a major, popular, public figure. I know, right…

Everyone’s dropping Le Sacre today, but I’m going to go with his most astonishing pure composition, Agon. And if you ever wonder what to listen to with Igor, just expect everything to be a masterpiece and go from there, because pretty much everything was a masterpiece.

If you’ve got the sheckles, this is one of the greatest collections of music since the advent of sound recordings.
