Sergei Prokofiev - early April, 1915, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 3-12 April 1915, page 37:

After bridge we sat down together at the piano with the piano score of Saltan. Nina strummed for a bit, and then said: 'This music is enough to make one want to shoot oneself.' She then announced that she had found a revolver in one of the Kuchinsky's drawers.*
