Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 21 February, 1926, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 21 February 1926, page 273:

Went to a concert given by Klemperer, who has been enjoying a furious success in Soviet Russia. He did not make much of an impression on me. Here, he is being beaten into second place by his compatriot Furtwängler.
