Sergei Prokofiev is probably most famous for his ballet, (see Star Trek III , track 3 for a sampling of this work) and the Troika from Lieutentant Kije is almost impossible to miss around Christmas. In terms of film music though, Prokofiev's greatest triumph was probably his score for Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky . The original recording of the score was apparently laughably awful; microphones were moved closer to certain instruments rather than changing of the orchestration; nothing so technical as mixing took place and compared to recordings made in Hollywood, the results were fairly appauling. There is a re-recording of the score, more akin to its original arrangement, but the work has been primarily known as a concert suite which is presented here, performed by The London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by Claudio Abbado. There is a good reason that some film music becomes so famous and in the case of Alexander Nevsky it's not terribly difficult to know why; it is very thematic, rousing, thrilling, beautiful and moves through every kind of emotion an epic tale such as Nevsky's should. Perhaps the highlight is the extended Battle on the Ice, which has been imitated on countless occasions, most notably in James Horner's score to

    Introduction (born Sontsovka, 23 April 1891; died Moscow, 5 March 1953). He showed precocious talent as a pianist and composer and had lessons from Glier from 1902. In 1904 he entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory, where Rimsky-Korsakov, Lyadov and Tcherepnin were among his teachers; Tcherepnin and Myaskovsky, who gave him valuable support, encouraged his interest in Skryabin, Debussy and Strauss enfant terrible , unintelligible and ultra-modern - an image he was happy to cultivate. His intemperateness in his early piano pieces, and later in such works as the extravagantly Romantic Piano Concerto no.1 and the ominous no.2, attracted attention. Then in 1914 he left the conservatory and travelled to London, where he heard Stravinsky 's works and gained a commission from Dyagilev: the resulting score was, however, rejected (the music was used to make the Scythian Suite ); a second attempt

    BalletNotes Home Page Sergei Prokofiev (Compiled March, 1998) Sergei Prokofiev, as he writes in his memoirs, "first saw the light of day on Wednesday 23rd April at five in the afternoon." The year was 1891, the centenary of Mozart’s death, the place a small village in the Ukraine, Sontsovka. Prokofiev’s father, originally from Moscow, was an agricultural engineer in this important region, his mother was, in Gliere’s words, "a tall woman with magnificent, intelligent eyes... who knew how to create around herself a warm, natural atmosphere." Having lost two daughters she devoted her life to music and spent two months a year in Moscow or St. Petersburg taking piano lessons. It was she who was the musical influence on young Sergei, beginning to teach him the piano at age 3. He wrote his first composition when he was six, The Indian Galop . After a trip to Moscow at age 8 where he was exposed to The Sleeping Beauty Faust and Prince Igor , he declared "I want to write an opera." Three or four months later he presented his parents with

Herein you will find varied materials related to his life and music. I encourage anyone with an interest in Prokofiev to submit something for possible inclusion on this site. I am looking for off-beat submissions that explore some of the lesser known aspects of Prokofiev's life and work. Also, I don't want to alienate the average music lover by presenting materials that are excessively technical in nature, so hopefully, most of the articles to be found here will be written for the intelligent layman.

    Sergei Prokofiev (1891 - 1953)

    Sergei Prokofiev was born in 1891 in Sontsovka, a small village in the Ukraine. His mother, a pianist, greatly encouraged Prokofiev in the musical field and guided his early career, both as a composer and a pianist. It was with his mother that Prokofiev first began studying music. He began composing at age five, before he could even write properly, and at age nine wrote his first opera. Entitled The Giant, it was written for performance by his family.
    After studying with his mother, Prokofiev took private lessons from Reinhold Gliere, and later entered the St Petersburg Conservatory, studying under Lyadov. Prokofiev was only 13 at this time, yet he had already composed four operas, one symphony, two sonatas, and a variety of piano pieces. His other teachers included Rimsky-Korsakov and Tcherepnin. Unfortunately, despite his tag as a child prodigy with undeniable talent, he was also seen as stubborn, ill tempered and unfriendly. This attitude, however, did not deter him, and his early career was highly successful. Important works composed while at the Conservatory include the Suggestion diabolique (1909) and the Piano Concerto No. 1 in D flat (1911). In 1914, after he'd completed his studies at the Conservatory, Prokofiev won the Rubinstein Prize with his performance of the D flat piano concerto. Touring aboad
    The year 1917 marked the start of the Russian Revolution, and to escape the insecurity and violence within his homeland, Prokofiev undertook a world tour. During this year, some of his most creative works were composed, such as the D major Violin Concerto, Visions fugitives for solo piano, and the Classical Symphony. The latter was the first work he composed away from the piano, and is an interesting work in that it amalgamates modern rhythm and texture with an 18th century format.
