Sample text

I ran home to tell them about it. There were trucks all over Petrograd, filled with soldiers, who were shooting. It was better not to go out in those days. I didn't forget that boy. And I never will. I tried to write music about it several times. " Then my Second and Twelfth Symphonies addressed the same theme. And not only those two symphonies. I also remember that there were a lot of prostitutes in Petrograd. They came out in flocks onto Nevsky Prospect in the evening. This be­ gan with the war, they serviced the soldiers.

As a result, one fine day I received an invitation. At first I was insulted, because the invitation was to a memorial evening for Vo­ lynsky, who had died by then. They were planning to memorialize his creative activity with a gala evening and they wanted me to appear with my reminiscences of him, since I had had contact with him at the Bright Reel. I was angry at first. But then I thought about it and decided why not ? Why shouldn't I appear with my reminiscences ? I had a story to tell and I went.

Let him pay me my money. And I'll go home. Had I worked so hard in order to support Volynsky's harem ? Not at all. But Volynsky didn't give me my money. I came to see him a few more times, in vain. He lectured me but didn't give me the money. Fi­ nally he paid part of it. I had to sue for the rest. Naturally, I left the Bright Reel, and it goes without saying that I didn't harbor any warm feelings for Volynsky after that business. I read his high-flown articles on ballet and other exalted matters with revulsion.
