I think this passage is the most original thing in the entire concerto. Prokofiev wanted something distinctive; a woodblock would be too thin, so he opted for castanets. At the end of the first movement, for the first time in the concertos, Prokofiev employs something he will use in the Fourth and Fifth: the same musical material but played faster. The coda is a fast version of the recapitulation. Ballet is what the andantino of the second-movement theme is all about — you really have the sense that a curtain is opening on to another world. You want it to be gentle and charming in the first variation when the piano enters.
