Igor Stravinksy in Paris - 19 May, 1928

from Igor Stravinsky: An Autobiography, page 140:

On my return to Paris I played my Concerto on May 19 under the excellent direction of Bruno Walter, who, thanks to his exceptional ability, made my task very pleasant, and I was quite free from anxiety over the rhythmically dangerous passages which are a stumbling block to so many conductors.
