Sergei Prokofiev - 9 April, 1913

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 9 April 1913, page 365:

Did not feel like starting to orchestrate the Scherzo. Played through on the piano the first movement of the Concerto and was enraptured by the splendid sound of the cadenza, the first time I had been able to play it right through.
