Sergei Prokofiev in Los Angeles - 13 December, 1921, at night
from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 13 January 1921, page 578:
The evening, or rather night, passed very pleasantly, everyone getting merry with drink and I danced with Baranovskaya. At midnight all the lights were doused, we shouted 'hurrah' and someone sang 'God Save the Tsar' and then immediately the Marseillaise. We agreed on 'Slavsya!' from A Life for the Tsar, which I predicted would be the future Russian National Anthem*, and which Ariadna and I there and then played on the piano four-hands.
