Alexey Alexeyev et al. in on a trip from Patras to Rome - 13 February, 1915, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 12-13 February 1915, page 18:

In the evening we came to Patras, where our group thought to go ashore, but the rain came on so hard we had to forgo that pleasure. As a result of Alexeyev's and Babastro's insistence I had no choice but to play for them, on condition that it was kept a secret from the other passengers. I sensed that formerly they had not had an especially high opinion of me, but now they were extravagant in their astonishment and appreciation.
