Sergei Prokofiev in St. Petersburg - late March, 1908

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 30 March 1908, page 45:

On Wednesday I heard Galkovsky's The Gypsies, which was receiving yet another performance. It was really the first time I had listened to it properly, and overall I suppose it was just about acceptable, but still pretty worthless.
