Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 25 February, 1914, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 25 February 1914, pages 608-609:

In the secnd half [of the student concert] I sat with Seryozha Alpers, Damskaya and an ebullient singer from somewhere or other. Nikolayev's playing was vigorous and full of colour a lot of people in the hall jumped up to have a better look, but I stayed in my seat.
