Igor Stravinksy in Saint Petersburg - 1908
from Memories and Commentaries, page 49:
The Chant funèbre that I composed in Rimsky’s memory was performed in a concert conducted by Felix Blumenfeld in St Petersburg shortly after Rimsky’s death. I remember the piece as the best of my works before Firebird, and the most harmonically advanced.
