"The audience expressed directly and flatly its dislike of Stravinsky's Concertino . . . The fiddles had spoken bitterly: futility. They had spoken angrily: boredom . . . The Stravinsky music is a drab, rasping tired shuffle and breakdown. It is like a locomotive which has fallen of the track, making its wheels revolve in air. Rhythms prolong themselves out of sheer inertia; pound on, wearily. A lyric coda of a few measures, a sort of momentary illumination of a darkened landscape, breaks off into silence."

(Paul Rosen feld, The Dial, New York, February 1921)
