Throughout 2018, The London Philharmonic Orchestra will be exploring the life and works of one of the most important and influential composers of the twentieth century, Igor Stravinsky.

Ahead of this year-long concert series, Changing Faces: Stravinsky’s Journey, the Orchestra has curated a special Spotify playlist showcasing the stylistic diversity, and revolutionary approaches to music of the great composer.

As with the concert series itself, this playlist chronologically charts the life and works of Stravinsky, highlighting the changing styles of his music as the composer was influenced by the different cultural and geographical events around him. The playlist moves from his early symphonies, via his explosive ballet scores, and back to his return to classical form.
