Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 17 December, 1912

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 17 December 1912, page 265:

Tsybin gave Ruth a decent performance that was well received out of respect for its routinely workmanlike composer. Tsybin's conducting style is fluent but unnecessarily expansive. Zakharov played extremely well.
