Put the cadenza in a separate identifier (i.e., cadenza = \relative
c'' { ... } ), then you can use mmrest-of-length to create a full-bar
rest with the same length:

Automatic line breaking relies on barlines, so you'll have to insert
invisible barlines (\bar "") where you're happy for a break to occur
(or force with \break).
