Sergey Prokofiev in Paris - 20 June, 1924, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 20 June 1924, page 73:

In the evening Ptashka and I attended the premiere of Milhaud's Le Train bleu, a deliberate essay at vulgar material orchestrated in a vulgar style. But it is all of a piece with these 'new' directions, the point of which escapes me.
