Igor Stravinksy in Clarens, Switzerland - the 1910's

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 46:

While Ravel was at Clarens I played him my Japanese poems. An epicure and connoisseur of instrumental jewelry, and quick to discern the subtleties of writing, he grasped the idea at once and decided to do something similar. Soon afterwards he played me his delicious 'Poèmes de Mallarmé'.
