Sergei Prokofiev in Los Angeles Philharmonic - 2 January, 1921, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 2 January 1921, page 571:

At three o'clock the Rumanovs came to collect me with Baranovskaya and a Mme Brunswick, a millionairess, to take me to the Philharmonic concert. We were supposed to go on afterwards to call on the young pianist who was the soloist at the concert, but he played so badly that I said I was not inclined to waste my time on such a nonentity.
