Chalanis Cheslovsky, linked to Stravinsky in their youth, gave an interview about why he had no choice but to compose the radical music he made. She explained it by saying “There was a puppet who noticed strings attached to his body. Worse, he sometimes noticed them lifting and dropping his limbs. For a while he had the fantasy of trying to cut the strings with scissors but feared it might mean his own death. He decided to keep what he saw secret and wait for something else to develop whatever that might be.”
