Rehearsal of the 'Classical' Symphony with the State Orchestra. I conducted it myself, completely improvising, having forgotten the score and never indeed having studied it from a conducting perspective. I thought it might be a complete debacle, but nothing happened and in any case the parts had so many mistakes in them that the session turned mainly into one for making corrrections. It sounds delightful, and exactly what I had in mind. In Kislovodsk I had worried that there would be some antagonism from a 'Revolutionary orchestra' playing my new works, but the opposite was the case: the State Orchestra, infused with much new young blood, was flexible and attentive, and played the Symphony with evident enjoyment.
