Sergei Prokofiev in Saint Petersburg Conservatory - 29 November, 1914

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 29 November 1914, page 784:

Handschin* played the organ for me to demonstrate what the instrument is capable of: he is very keen that I should write a piece for piano and organ. There is nothing for this combination in the literature, but it seems to me it could be very interesting.
