The second of my concerts. First performance of the Fourth Sonata. Quite a large audience, but not completely full. A very warm reception; colossal enthusiasm for Suggestion Diabolique. I had not predicted a great success for the Fourth Sonata, but I was quite wrong: the serious elements of the audience all immediately appreciated the second movement, while the others liked the finale, which I played for the first time as it should be played, taking the crescendo leading up to the final statement of the main theme to the very top. Hitherto I had been afraid that I had produced a finale with too abruptly docked a tail, but now it became clear to me that it is good, and that if the final climax is done correctly it represents precisely that culminating point of the sonata after which it must come swiftly to a conclusion.
