Serge Koussevitzky et al. in Paris - 19 May, 1924, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 19 May 1924, pages 54-55:

Went to a chamber concert in the evening in which the Hebrew Overture was performed. It was well done and well received, although by a small audience. For some reason the clarinettist considered himself the soloist and during the applause came out to take a bow on his own. Koussevitzky came to the concert and liked the overture very much.
