Igor Stravinksy in London - June, 1914

from Memories and Commentaries, page 95:

The London performances in June were probably superior to the Paris première in May, if only because the singers and dancers would have had more time with their parts. I immensely enjoyed the London performance, at any rate, thanks also to the generosity of Sir Thomas Beecham.
