Igor Stravinksy in Paris

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 37:

When I returned to Paris for the Diaghileff season, I heard, among other things, the brilliant score of Maurice Ravel’s 'Daphins et Chloé', Ravel having previously given me some idea of it by playing it to me on the piano. Not only is it one of Ravel’s greatest achievements, it is one of the finest things in French music.
