Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 26 November, 1919, in the afternoon

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 26 November 1919, page 440:

There was an afternoon concert by a not very good singer, Dora de Philippe, whose programme included my Akhmatova Songs translated by her into English. She sang nicely enough, but she has not much of a voice, and the hall was empty. The songs were successful, and had to be encored.
