Igor Stravinksy in Saint Petersburg - in the beginning of the 1900's

from Memories and Commentaries, page 227:

I had heard his [Schoenberg] name as early as 1907, but Pierrot Lunaire was the first contact with his music that I remember, although Prokofiev played two of his opus II pieces in a St Petersburg concert whose date I do not recall.
