Sergei Prokofiev - May, 1915
from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: May 1915, pages 44-45:
Everywhere people were playing my latest opus, the Sarcasms, invariably to stunning effect, but mostly from the outside; very few people appreciated their inner content. Nurok and Nouvel commented: 'After the Sarcasms, your next opus will have to be called Five Charges of Assault and Battery,' and laughed immoderately at their witticism.
