Sergei Prokofiev - 18 April, 1918, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 18 April 1914, page 655:

I played through the Sonata and set off for the 'Evening of Contemporary Music' where Myaskovsky's Cello Sonata was performed (not very excitingly, rather slow and boring). Medem played some of his trivial little pieces.
