Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - November, 1908

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 22 November 1908, page 69:

Alpers* performed recently at a student evening, without making much impression. I saw Yury Frolov there on this occasion and didn't recognize him at all - he was wearing an awful pince-nez.
