Repertoire Note  


In 1912 Stravinsky read an anthology of Japanese lyrics. “The impression which they made on me was exactly like that made by Japanese paintings and engravings. The graphic solution of problems of perspective and space shown by their art incited me to find something analagous in music.” The resulting mini-songs set three lyrics about the coming of Spring.
