Sergey Prokofiev in Paris - 9 June, 1925, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 9 June 1925, page 174:

In the evening, Borovsky's concert, in which the first work was my Second Sonata. The first three movements were so-so, not done as well as I play them, but the finale was quite brilliant. The success was lukewarm.
