Igor Stravinksy in Berlin - in the beginning of the 1910's

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, pages 43-44:

It was on that visit to Berlin that I first met Schönberg, who invited me to an audition of his Pierrot Lunaire. I did not feel the slightest enthusiasm about the aesthetics of the work, which appeared to me to be a retrogression to the out-of-date Beardsley cult. But, on the other hand, I consider that the merits of the instrumentation are beyond dispute.
