Alexey Kal et al. in Los Angeles - 29 December, 1920, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 29 December 1920, page 563:

We drank tea, and then at Kal's request Ariadna played her compositions. Her songs - one of which, 'The Letter Zh' was in imitation of my style - are fairly sugary although a listener prepared to be indulgent might from time to time hear some not uninteresting turns of phrase.
