Igor Stravinsky composed music in almost every genre. His stage music, concert hall music and chamber music have always proved popular. On the other hand, apart from the Three Movements from Petrushka, his solo piano pieces have remained relatively unknown. The last two decades, however, have seen a growing interest in Stravinsky's solo piano music, with these coming to be performed and recorded on a somewhat more regular basis. Academic interest in them has increased as well. However, in comparison with the rest of Stravinsky's musical output, these works warrant more attention from scholars, performers and audiences. They deserve a more prominent place in the piano repertoire. This study will analyse one of Stravinsky's major solo piano pieces, the Serenade en La.
