Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 9 May, 1914

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 9 May 1914, page 674:

I managed to rehearse my Concerto before his [Glazunov's] arrival; it went very well; and I think that with any other than a student orchestra it would have been my best performance to date of the work.
