Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 24 March, 1919

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 24 March 1919, page 404:

Play-back and editing of the piano rolls. This is interesting work, but very time-consuming. The main problem with the nstrument is that when playing a chord it is impossible to bring out individual notes. Likewise one cannot bring out a theme in an inner voice.
