Dear Forum members,

Do any of you recall whether Nabokov let any of his characters anytime listen to music or even like music in any of his his fiction?  Is there a complete consistency also in his works of intense dislike for music? I know that Nabokov himself never liked music and said so for instance in Speak Memory... Music, I regret to say...etc.

Respectful wishes from northern latitudes (Nabokov is read and studied all over the world, - even in Iceland).
