Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 12 January, 1919, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 12 January 1919, page 380:

I heard Rachmaninoff, his Second Concerto, which he played magnificently. The success was overwhelming, which pleased me greatly, and I joined heartily in the applause. I went backstage to see him, but there was such a savage expression on his face that I immediately went away again.
