Sergei Prokofiev - 27 March, 1913, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 27 March 1913, page 354:

At seven o'clock I went to dine with Saburov* and to play in various chamber groups. The diplomat Persiani is very knowledgeable about music, and old man Saburov really surprised me by sitting down at the piano and giving a most energetic account of the Kreutzer Sonata. I tried to get away as early as I could.
