Igor Stravinksy in Prague - between at the end of the 1800's and in the beginning of the 1900's

from Themes and Conclusions, page 225:

Another conductor I admired was Alexander von Zemlinsky. In fact, I remember a Marriage of Figaro led by him in Prague as one of the most satisfying operatic experiences of my life. I should also mention such exacting and reliable musicians as Fritz Busch, Roger Desormière, and Hans Rosbaud.
