Happy Birthday, Igor Stravinsky

Born on this date in 1882, he’d have been 129 years young today.

Here’s a little song, “The Owl and the Pussycat,” from the poem by Edward Lear.

Written in 1966 and dedicated to his wife, Vera, it was the last piece Stravinsky composed.

Charmingly sweet.


And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
    They danced by the light of the moon,
        The moon,
        The moon,
    They danced by the light of the moon.
