Igor Stravinksy in Russia - at the end of the 1800's

from Memories and Commentaries, page 36:

I heard much peasant music in Pechisky, too, though most of it was produced by accordions. Gypsy camps existed in the neighbourhood, but I did not hear any gypsy music. My parents had so frightened me of gypsies that I am still afraid.
