Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 14 December, 1919, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 14 December 1919, page 447:

In the evening I played through with Janacopulos around thirty of Rimsky-Korsakov's songs, each one feebler than the last. I cannot understand how the composer of Sheherezade and Kitezh could perpetrate such things!
