Happy Birthday, Igor

The Stravinsky family summer home was in Ustilug, West Ukraine, near the borders with Poland and Belarus. It was at this summer home that Stravinsky heard much of the Slavic and Jewish folk music -- and saw much of the Slavic and Jewish folk lore -- that helped inspire his great early vocal, orchestral, and stage masterpieces.
