Nikolay Andreyev et al. - 3 January, 1914, at night

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 3 January 1914, pages 580-581:

I played my sarcastic pieces. Andreyev loved No. 2 and said it was as if the piano was on fire with sixteen hands. Myaskovsky was less taken with this one but praised No. 3, which everyone else finds hard to understand. In No. 4 the different key signatures in the left and right hands provoked much lively discussion, likewise the final B flat. I defended it vigorously.
