Stravinsky in St Petersburg


The Stravinsky family lived in this apartment block on the Krioukov Canal in St Petersburg for more than eighty years. Their exact apartment can be located by the windows on the second floor above the entrance.

Now take a Path to Stravinsky - the last great composer?

Would you believe it? Somebody has just emailed me suggesting that the reflection in Stravinsky's glasses in the previous post is the apartment block in this one.

Personally I think the reflection is an unpublished Stravinsky score in imitation of the Goldberg canon in Haussmann's portrait of Bach.
