Sergei Prokofiev in Palais Garnier - 5 May, 1924

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 5 May 1924, page 49:

The first rehearsal with orchestra, in the foyer of the Grand Opéra which is so boomy it is hard to understand anything. Koussevitzky simply read through it, without me, in order to familiarise the orchestra with the material and to iron out some mistakes in the parts.
