Sergei Prokofiev - early 20th Century

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: June 1915, page 49:

That dear, wonderful man Sergey Ivanovich Taneyev has died. Long ago we went for a walk together, each of us singing themes for the other to identify and say what work it came from. He stumped me with Ruslan, which I did not know well, and I him with Glazunov's symphonies.
