That was when Mr. Stravinsky, in his Russian accent, asked Mr. Klein, “Tell me, my dear, do you love our Bliss very much?”

“I recall being rather shocked by such a question,” he said. “Remember, this was 1964. I stuttered out, ‘Yes, I do,’ to which the composer responded, ‘Well, then, my dear, you must take very good care of our Bliss.’ ”

Mr. Klein added, “I’ve tried to do that ever since.”
