520    Nadia Boulanger and Igor Stavinsky began corresponding in 
       1929 when Stavinsky sought someone to supervise the 
       musical education of his younger son, Soulima. Boulanger 
       accepted the position and began what would prove to be a 
       warm and lasting dialogue with the Stravinsky family. For 
       fifty years, Boulanger exchanged letters with Igor 
       Stavinsky. An additional 140 letters exist written to 
       Boulanger from Stravinsky's immediate family: his wife 
       Catherine, his mother Anna, and his sons Théodore and 
       Soulima. Nadia Boulanger and the Stravinskys: A Selected 
       Correspondence makes avialable a rich selection from this 
       many-sided dialogue. The letters are published here in 
       English translation (most for the first time in their 
       entirety or at all). The little-known French originals are
       available on the book's companion website. The letters 
       allow us to follow the conversation shared between 
       Boulanger and the Stravinskys from 1929 until 1972, the 
       year following Igor Stavinsky's death. Through the words 
       they exchanged, we see Boulanger and Stravinsky transition
       from respectful colleagues to close friends to, finally, 
       distant icons, with music serving always a central topic. 
       These letters are a testament to one master teacher's 
       power to shape the culture canon and one composer's desire
       to embed himself within historical narratives. Their 
       worlds touch upon matters professional and personal, 
       musical and social, with the overall narrative reflecting 
       the turmoil of life during the twentieth century and the 
       fragility of artists hoping to leave their mark on the 
       modernist period--back cover.
