Gregor Piatigorsky - 1924

from Cellist- Gregor Piatigorsky, page 108:

Aside from the conductors, the parade of people renting the orchestra at times included instrumentalists who couldn’t play and singers who couldn’t sing. But it didn’t bother my colleagues, because they developed an amazing insensitivity through the years which helped them to survive. For me, however, it was not easy. The rehearsals tended to last an eternity, and embarrassment at certain performances did not lessen.
