Sergei Prokofiev in Paris - 18 January, 1924

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 18 January 1924, pages 10-11:

Went to a rehearsal of a new symphonic orchestral society, Cora,* where I met the conductor, Wolff, whom as a matter of fact I had met before in New York when I played my opera to Gatti-Casazza. I sparked his interest in Myaskovsky's symphonies and will tomorrow show them to him. Practised the First Piano Concerto, and it went smoothly.
