“Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky (17 June [O.S. 5 June] 1882 – 6 April 1971) was a Russian-born, naturalized French, later naturalized American composer, pianist, and conductor. He is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and influential composers of 20th century music. He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. He became a naturalized French citizen in 1934 and a naturalized US citizen in 1945. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works”. – Wikipedia

A leader “Rolli” of a yodel group “Schuppel” runs in the snow in front of a farmstead during the “Silvesterchlausen” in the early morning in Urnaesch in the Swiss canton Appenzell Ausserroden on January 13, 2017. The “Silvesterchlausen” is a tradition of the Swiss canton Appenzell, where colorfull characters organized in groups called “Schuppel”, chase out the old year and welcome the new one. They run all day long from farmstead to farmstead, gather together to sing a jodel and great the farmers. A “Schuppel” consists of some “Schelli” and two “Rolli”, sometimes with female dresses and nice scenes over the head, despite the dress all participants are males. The Silversterchlausen run twice a year, first for the new Silvester on December 31, and then again on January 13, for the old Silvester following the Julian calendar.
