birth year wrong

Varese was born in 1883, not 1885 as some references indicate. See Malcolm MacDonald's book "Varèse : Astronomer in Sound" among others. The error is important, in that the NY music establishment was planning an 80 year celebration for 1965, and he died before the event. However, he was actually 80 in 1963.
