Igor Stravinsky

The Russian composer Igor Stravinsky came to the Lake Geneva Region for health reasons. He composed several major works here.


Igor Stravinski

Musician, composer and conductor Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) and his family lived in the Lake Geneva region after 1910. He was looking for a microclimate favourable to his wife’s health and stayed in Montreux, Clarens and in 1916 in Morges. He met several composers and musicians, among them Ramuz, with whom he wrote the famous Histoire du Soldat (The Soldier’s Tale).
