Sergei Prokofiev in Concertgebouw - 20 December, 1925, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 20 December 1925, page 237:

The Scythian Suite was in the programme for an open concert.* I heard it from a box behind the orchestra. This to some extent made the sound less homogenous: individual instruments stood out with greater clarity, but the ensemble did not sound as good. The success was great and I was called out to take a bow.
