Biches was followed by Les Noces, which I was hearing for the first time. This is the work of a master, with an intensity approaching that of The Rite of Spring. A marvellous work. I went to congratulate Stravinsky; we kissed, but when I voiced my criticism of Biches I was astonished to hear him leap to Poulenc's defence. I said: 'I simply can't believe you like it.' Stravinsky (offended): 'What reason do you have to doubt my sincerity? You and I simply look at this from different perspectives.' I really do not understand this at all, and would like to have a serious conversation with Stravinsky about it. I had nothing to say to Poulenc, and I imagine he was disconcerted by my attitude. But it has also upset me, as I had thought him a real composer.
