Widely regarded as one of the most influential composers of the 20th Century (and reportedly one of Coco Chanel’s lovers), Igor would have turned 129 years old today.

To celebrate the proverbial birthday: a rare look at the relationship between musicians and a composer, in a way that is by and large unparalleled in contemporary music.

To you, Iggy. I loathed playing your music as a boy (your violin concerto was a great source of anguish, which, for the record, I did not need at 13), but oh how I miss you now.

Much love,
JGC
