When stravinsky met nijinsky. Two Artists, Their Ballet, and One Extraordinary Riot. by Lauren Stringer ; illustrated by Lauren Stringer. In 1913 Paris, two Russians, Igor Stravinsky the composer and Vaslav Nijinsky the, took the western European art world by storm when the Ballet Russes premiered The Rite of Spring. Each returned to his Russian roots for both music and movement, leaving far behind the melodic strains and gorgeous balletic movements of Swan Lake. The new sounds, more harsh and dissonant, and the new steps, more earthy and folkloric, left the audience both wildly cheering and jeering.

When Stravinsky Met Nijinsky, written and illustrated by Lauren . Stringer takes some liberties with the facts.

When Stravinsky Met Nijinsky, written and illustrated by Lauren Stringer, reveals the reasons why a ballet caused such a fuss. Two solitary artists, Igor Stravinsky and Vaslav Nijinksy, happen separately upon plans to do something unexpected and unique. But the effect is to streamline a more complex tale into a coherent story that will make sense to readers (who, even if they respond to arguments, probably wouldn’t be as fascinated by the actual behind-the-scenes between Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev).

This is a great little book. At first it seems advanced for young children, but the story is simple and the illustrations are excellent. This is going to my 4 yr. old grandson. Though his favorite composer is now Mozart, it may change to Stravinsky!
Reemiel
Love the incorporation of all the arts; music, visual and dance! Illustrations are colorful and beautiful and very well done.
Besides the beautifully flowing and whimsical illustrations, this story shares a historical leap in music and dance that is easily understood by our youngest readers. I love how Lauren presents in words and pictures the importance of thinking differently, together.
