Sergei Prokofiev - 5 May, 1918, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 22 April [5 May] 1918, page 275:

In the evening, Nina, deeply moved, sang a song someone had fashioned from Chopin's Third Etude. She sang it divinely: at first I was appalled at the desecration wrought by the lyrics, but then melted completely under the spell of her singing.
