Sergei Prokofiev - 13 April, 1916

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 13 April 1916, page 121:

Scriabin died a year ago today. Borovsky played a recital of his works with his customary excellence, the Sixth Sonata being particularly fine. I have not hitherto known this sonata very well, but this time it gave me tremendous pleasure. I sat next to Obukhov during the performance and had quite a long talk with him.
