On the third day of musical homages on EXPLORING MUSIC (1000), Stravinsky plucks violin and flute lines from his idol, Tchaikovsky in Fairy's Kiss. He is not Stravinsky's only idol; the budding composer sent his former teacher, Rimsky-Korsakov, the piece he wrote for Rimsky-Korsakov's wedding, but due to his death, it was never delivered. Modest Mussorgsky illustrates an entire exhibit in his music, in memory of Viktor Hartman's paintings.

Following on HARMONIA (1100), several composers take up Josquin's "Mille Regretz" for a multitude of settings.

Earlier — Composers could inspire one another and for that, they held immense respect for one another. Mozart refers to his quartets as sons whom he sends to Haydn for proper guidance. After Tchaikovsky informs Anton Arensky of his appreciation for Arensky's opera, Arensky expresses his gratitude for the elder talent's respect by arriving at his doorstep. Respect is heard in more than one variation on today's EXPLORING MUSIC (1000).
