An Autobiography chronicles the first half-century of Stravinsky's life, all the while offering his opinions and abhorrences. A Parsifal performance at Bayreuth? At the end of a quarter of an hour I could bear no more. Nijinsky? The poor boy knew nothing of music. Spanish folk music? Endless preliminary chords of guitar playing.
