Sergey Prokofiev in Stockholm - 8 November, 1925, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 8 November 1925, page 228:

My second orchestral appearance with the Second Concerto. I played better than the first time. It was also more of a success: on this occasion, Dobrowen, conducting Borodin's Symphony, did not eclipse me. All the same, I had better polish the Concerto meticulously so that in future it goes irreproachably.
