Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 16 February, 20th Century

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 16 February 1913, page 316:

At nine o'clock a serious rehearsal had been laid on with the small orchestra. This orchestra does not play particularly well, and the Weber accompaniment was frankly bad. Tsybin is ill and his work has been given to Dranishnikov.
