Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 23 December, 1907

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 25 December 1907, page 30:

The second meeting of the 'emerging composers' took place on the 23rd and, ye gods, was even worse than the first one. This time nine people were present, all of them, practically without exception, the personification of dullness. To be fair the one exception does have undoubted talent: Rastropovich.
