I can remember a conversation I had with my mother about Stravinsky's Firebird. I was amazed to learn that she had seen Stravinsky on a trip she took with my father. She had passed him in a hotel lobby and people were whispering, "That's Stravinsky." I remember feeling a bit awed that she had come so close to him....and tucked this away as another surprise about Mom.
