Igor Stravinksy in Oranienbaum, Russia - in the beginning of the 1880's

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 5:

My parents were not specially concerned with my musical development until I was nine. It is true that there was music in the house, my father being the leading bass singer of the Imperial Opera in St. Petersburg, but I heard all this music only at a distance- from the nursery to which my brothers and I were relegated.
