Nathan Milstein in Moscow - early 20th Century

from From Russia to the West : the musical memoirs and reminiscences of Nathan Milstein, page 65:

Once Horowitz and I appeared with Chekhov at the end of some rally. Horowitz performed Liszt’s “Funérailles” brilliantly, while I made a fool of myself by starting to play the Bach Chaconne and forgetting it in the middle.
