As he appears in the text:

“When Reynaldo Hahn and Marcel Proust met in 1894, Marcel had written very little, while Reynaldo, a Venezuelan-born child prodigy, was already a celebrated musician and composer and had just completed his first opera. The two collaborated on what became Marcel’s first book, Pleasures and Days. Though the romantic aspect of their friendship was relatively brief, they stayed in touch for decades, often corresponding in a secret code. A trip they took along the Brittany coast seemingly inspired many scenes from In Search of Lost Time.”
