Little note:

I think mid-late Stravinsky really shows that he learned some valuable lessons from Mozart and Webern about timbrel space and letting notes hang there, giving each voice lots of room to breath and resonate.

Still collecting more data as I explore chronologically. Les Noces was good.

I already know Agon, though. I quite liked Agon. So maybe I'm going to like all 3 periods a fair amount?

Most of us do :) But you'll probably find one period has more favorites than the others.

My favorite Stravinsky phase is his whole career.

I should have known I would not be the first.
