Sergei Prokofiev in Chicago - 30 December, 1921, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 30 December 1921, page 656:

Koshetz came after an hour with Prince Arabelov; many people, on hearing that he was a prince, jumped to the conclusion that he had played the part of the Prince and congratulated him on his success. By general demand I played the March several times, and Koshetz sang. She was wonderful, and I said to her: 'If only you would stick to singing and stop all that rubbish you keep spouting!'
