Sergei Prokofiev in New York City - 5 March, 1919, in the afternoon

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 5 March 1919, pages 394-395:

In the afternoon I listened to my Prelude. All the wrong notes have already been corrected, but the slightest unevenness in execution stands out in exaggerated relief, and this is horrible to listen to. I expended great efforts in making the necessary adjustments. I have dragged out the final meno mosso much too much, but nothing can be done about that now and it's not worth doing it all over again.
