The early days of orchestral stereo recording

You were a young engineer in the late days of Mono and early days of Stereo.
You must have some great stories from those early orchestral sessions.
How involved were the great conductors of the time in the development of new stereo techniques, and what were their concerns? I imagine them being more open minded about new approaches than they are nowadays as nothing was set in stone yet.
Did you have access to the hall for experimentation during rehersals?
What was the general feeling among the players, soloists and conductors in those sessions?
