From Bosley's Cyclopædia of Musical Anecdotes

“Le morceau est plûtot une symphonie indistinguible.”
[The piece would better be described as an indistinguishable symphony.]
—Maruice Ravel on Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable” (as overheard by Jacques Sedule, music correspondent for Le Figaro, at the work’s Paris premiere on 24 January 1928).
