Igor Stravinksy - the 1900's
from Memories and Commentaries, page 282:
The first movement is so often mangled by conductors’ delayed beats and soggy ritardandi that I rarely listen to it. The same can be said of the Funeral March, and the let-down of the last movement is all the worse for following the marvel of the Scherzo.
