Igor Stravinsky correspondence

Scope and Content

These files mainly consist of letters from Stravinsky himself, some with later translations or transcriptions. They include photocopies of correspondence between Stravinsky and Maurice Delage, correspondence between Igor Stravinsky and his agents relating to his American tour of 1924 with a copy of the contract for this tour, and a significant number of letters from Stravinsky to Vittorio Rieti. Other correspondence relates to Persephone, Jeu de Cartes, Rossignol, Firebird, and other works of Stravinsky.


The correspondence is in three main groups: correspondence with Maurice Delage, correspondence relating to the American tour, and correspondence with Vittorio Rieti. It is arranged in chronological order within these groups.
