Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 17 December, 1912

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 17 December 1912, page 265:

On the morning of the 17th I went to the morning chamber music concert, although it promised little of interest. Golubovskaya* played delicately. Tilichka Hansen** is very decorative, and her hands are bewitchingly graceful in play. Zakharov was sticking like glue to both the Hansen sisters, but I declined to bow to Frieda who seemed very much put out by this.
