Igor Stravinksy in Berlin - 1900

from Themes and Conclusions, page 225:

I have admired the work of many conductors during my long career as a listener. Felix Weingartner, for instance, was a near idol of mine in my youth, and a Beethoven cycle I heard him direct in Berlin in 1900 was a very great event in my life. In later years, too, I attended his concerts at every opportunity.
