Prokofieff

 Portrait
Serge Prokofieff
1891 - 1953

With an early reputation of an enfant terrible and virtuoso pianist, Serge Prokofieff became a major figure of the 20th century and is one of its most popular composers, with music characterised by sharp wit, memorable melodies, and vivid instrumental colour.

He left Russia in 1918 for the USA, but returned in 1936 to recapture his roots. His works from these Soviet years are among his most celebrated - for example: Peter and the Wolf, and the ballet Romeo and Juliet. During this time, however, he was also under political attack from cultural commissars.
He died in 1953, on the same day as Stalin.

Recommended Listening:

Romeo and Juliet (highlights), Symphony No. 5, Piano Concerto No. 2
