Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 4 November, 1913, in the morning

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 15 July 1914, page 534:

Next morning I went to rehearse the programme for our concert. The finale of the Seventh Symphony is so badly orchestrated that it is torture to learn it with the orchestra! Shkarovskaya was late for rehearsal and St Serge* was in an agony of apprehension.
