At the Russian Army Piano Bar . . . ?
Here is Alexander Borodin's description of Modest Musorgsky as a young army officer in the Preobrazhensky Guard:
"Musorgsky was at that time a very elegant, dapper little officer . . . he sat at the piano and, coquettishly throwing up his hands, played excerpts from Trovatore, Traviata, etc., very pleasantly and gracefully."
Paints quite a picture, don't you think?
