Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 20 March, 1913

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 20 March 1913, page 349:

At nine o'clock I was in the orchestra class with the small orchestra, the large orchestra having been stood down until the Graduation Concert. Tsybin was going through the Andante desk by desk, and the tedium and gloom were of such Stygian proportions that I went home to compose my Concerto.
