Sergei Prokofiev in Pianos Pleyel, 93-95 Avenue Daumesnil, Paris - 29 April, 1924

from Sergey Prokofiev diaries: 29 April 1924, pages 47-48:

Borovsky has scrupulously learnt the second piano part of the Second Concerto and today we went together to Pleyel's shop to rehearse it. In places it was comic, because the second piano threw me off course and I could not manage my part, especially in the Intermezzo and the beginning of the Finale.
