Quiz! Firebird -- Apollo
Carolyn Kunin sends the following reference to various works, some of
which VN alludes to in his fiction:

A challenge to the list (this is a quiz, and there will be a prize, or
surprise*) -

Identify the person responsible for the existence of the following
important, nay defining pieces of 20th century music:

The Firebird Petrushka Pulcinello Les noces Apollo Весна

* treat, or trick?

** Le sacre du printemps (btw - does anyone know - I don't, but will try
to find out - why it isn't Les sacres du printemps?

P.S. Not strictly Nabokovian, perhaps, but those of us who lived through
the bad old years will find this evidence of Moscovian wedding joy more
than spas (fun)
