Sergei Prokofiev in Tokyo - 4 June, 1918, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 22 May [4 June] 1918, page 289:

In the evening I went to a recital by Meyerovich and Piastro, and took away a very favourable impression. The audience was European, well turned out, and the programme consisted of serious music pretty well played. Meyerovich is not bad, although I would not call him a truly outstanding pianist. Piastro, though, is an excellent violinist. An idea: I should compose a violin sonata!
