Sergei Prokofiev in Paris - between mid February, 1921 and mid March, 1921

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 22 February - 20 March 1921, pages 591-592:

In Paris the people I saw most of, besides Larionov and Goncharova, were the Stahls and Samoilenko. They are all very close friends. Among the musicians I saw a great deal of Schloezer, who is working on an article about me, and Prunières, a very cultivated Frenchman and publisher of the excellent music journal La Revue musicale. I heard music by Poulenc and Milhaud (members of 'Les Six') in which the occasional interesting idea disappears into an abyss of bad taste.
