Joseph Szigeti in Moscow - at the end of the 1920's

from With strings attached- Reminiscences and reflections, 2nd edition, enlarged, page 333:

I thought of how the intuitiveness of artists like Tairov and Alice Koonen revealed to me- over the barrier of a language I did not understand- the essential Americanism of Eugene O’Neill's 'Desire Under the Elms' when they gave a Russian version of it in Moscow in the late 1920s.
