Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg - December, 1907
from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 2 December 1907, page 25:
After that came Saint-Saëns's Suite algérienne, a piece I had analysed fully in Tcherepnin's score-reading class last year. But this was the first time I had heard it played by an orchestra, and I had no idea how marvellously it was orchestrated, simply astounding!
