Alexander Winkler in Saint Petersburg - 10 October, 1907

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 10 October 1907:

Last time I played for him, Winkler was full of praise for my Bach G minor Fugue. He didn't stop me once, and kept saying, 'Good, very good', all the way through, which I have never in my life heard from him before.
