Robert Craft, Stravinsky's longtime personal assistant, is the source of the rumor and that only heightens doubt: Craft has a new book out about Stravinsky. He has also had a longstanding interest in the ownership of various aspects of Stravinsky's story, even while the composer was alive. Music wags have reacted with skepticism: Maybe it's true, maybe it's not, but we'll need more than Craft's word for it to make us believe it. "Craft has a track record for reconstructing history," one scholar, quoted in the LA Times, put it. And there it stands. Until we get more explicit evidence, if we ever do, what we have is a mystery. If Stravinsky were born today and lived to 2102? Simple: There would be no rumor. His life would be an open book and anyone who was curious would already know the details. No telescoping. No mystery. Just check the data. Case closed before it could be opened.
