Sergei Prokofiev in Milan - late March, 1915

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 20-22 March 1915, page 29:

Stravinsky and I had adjoining rooms, so we unlocked the communicating doors and had long conversations in the mornings and evenings. When he heard my Second Piano Concerto, Toccata and the Second Sonata, Stravinsky was seized by the wildest enthusiasm, declaring that I was a real Russian composer, the only one to be found in Russia. For my part I was genuinely enthralled by his new Pribaoutki, which he performed in a highly amusing style.
