In the evening Mama and I went to hear Zherebtsova-Andreyeva, who had included my song 'There Are Other Planets' in her programme. I was extremely interested to hear my song, never having heard it performed before. Rather good, although naturally not for the wider public (although actually it was very well received). Anna Grigorievna sang wonderfully, except for her habit of clearing her throat when she finished singing, but Dulov accompanied drily and he played some wrong notes in the bass. In the interval he said to me, 'Well, I seemed to get your song worked out all right, don't you think?'

I mumbled something in reply.

'Surely there wenre't any wrong notes, were there?'

(Laughing) 'Quite a few, actually!'

Dulov took offence. 'Well, you know, it was quite a feat to play the song at all, the writing is so tangled and involved! And then your calligraphy is so awful, like chickens' feet!'
