Sergei Prokofiev in Paris - 12 February, 1924
from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 12 February 1924, page 20:
Borovsky had left the previous evening, only a few hours before my arrival. It's really unacceptable: first there is one husband, then the other, but never the two of them.* In my absence he had been learning the March from Three Oranges, and now even the cook was singing it.
