One of the greatest composers of the 20th century, Igor Stravinsky did not show interest in a music career until, while a law student, he began to study composition with Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Stravinsky captured the limelight with compositions written for the Ballets Russes de Sergei Diaghilev in Paris: The Firebird (1910), Petrouchka (1911), and The Rite of Spring (1913). The Rite of Spring was not received well at the time, although it is now considered a classic. Stravinsky's originality and unpredictable individualism kept him from forming a school of composition, but the influence of his music was widespread. Among those influenced by his work include the composers Dmitry Shostakovich, Darius Milhaud, and Aaron Copland.
