NWR Nadia Boulanger

Similar story associated with Ravel too.
Yup, I see it mentioned in my Ravel biographies. I guess it shows how this kid from Russian-Jewish parents and the Lower East Side couldn't believe/comprehend how great he really was.

Also interesting that Gershwin and Ravel died within six months of each other due to brain problems; the exact nature of Ravel's problem has never been explained.
