Igor Stravisnky in Russia - between 1906 and 1907

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 22:

During the season of 1906-1907, I finished my symphony and dedicated it to him [Rimsky-Korsakov]. I composed also a little suite for voice and orchestra, 'Faurne et Bergère', on three poems by Pushkin in the manner of Parny. Rimsky-Korsakov, who had closely followed the composition of these two works, wishing to give me the opportunity of hearing them, arranged with the Court orchestra to have them performed in the spring of 1907 at a private audition under the direction of its usual conductor H. Wahrlich.
