In his own words...

"When I was in the United States and England I often heard discussions on the subject of whom music ought to serve, for whom a composer ought to write, and to whom his music should be addressed. In my view the composer, just as the poet, the sculptor or the painter, is in duty bound to serve man, the people. He must beautify human life and defend it. He must be a citizen first and foremost, so that his art may consciously extol human life and lead man to a radiant future. Such, as I see it, is the immutable goal of art." Russian composer and pianist.
The politics and aesthetics of Soviet-era Russia created great artistic tensions. Sergei Prokofiev's career and music reflect this in many ways. Yet they also reflect a composer who was aware of his own musical strengths and used this to his advantage.
Prokofiev showed his talent, especially for composition, at an early age. He entered the conservatory at St. Petersburg with a large number of compositions already written. He studied with Rimsky-Korsakov, and finished his composition studies in 1909. He continued studies in piano, and in 1914 earned the conservatory's highest honors. He quickly established a reputation as something of an enfant terrible , both in his playing and in his compositions.

Early years
Prokofiev was born in Sontsovka (now the village of Krasne in Donetsk oblast), Russian Empire (now Ukraine ) as an only child. His mother was a pianist and his father a relatively wealthy agricultural engineer. Prokofiev displayed unusual musical abilities at an early age and in 1902, when he started taking private lessons in composition, he had already produced a number of pieces. As soon as he had the necessary theoretical tools he quickly started experimenting, laying the base for his own musical style. After a while, Prokofiev felt that the isolation in Sontsovka was restricting his further musical development. Although his parents were not too keen on forcing their son into a musical career at such an early age, in 1904 he moved to St Petersburg and applied to the Academy of Music. He passed the introductory tests and started his composition studies the same year, being several years younger than most of his classmates. He was viewed as eccentric and arrogant, and he often expressed dissatisfaction with much of the education, which he found boring. During this period he studied under, among others

Why a Prokofiev Web Page?
The resources of the WorldWideWeb provide a wonderful opportunity to supplement traditional sources of information in a convenient and appealing format. I do not believe that the WWW will make printed materials and their repositories obsolete in the forseeable future. However, there are possibilities of presentation and integration of various media that can make a unique contribution to serious information exchange. It is in this spirit that I offer this site.
What is here?
This site will focus on materials relating to Prokofiev's piano music and his own playing of his piano works. Currently the following materials are available: a bibliography of books and articles on Prokofiev and his music, primarily in English. No Russuan-language sources are listed, as this is beyond my level of expertise. Where I can offer useful information regarding the sources, individual bibliographic entries may be annotated. This bibliography does not claim to be, nor is meant to be exhaustive. a discography of Prokofiev's piano recordings.

34. Sincerity In Music: Sergei Prokofiev's Classical Symphony
Analysis of prokofiev s Classical Symphony by composer and music educator Edward Green.
E DWARD G REEN COMPOSER, MUSIC EDUCATOR / NEW YORK CITY Sincerity in Music BY EDWARD GREEN Part 1 I will be speaking tonight on a piece of music I love, the Classical Symphony of Sergei Prokofiev. This symphony has thrilled people deeply and often since its premiere in 1918 in St. Petersburg, Russia. I think the thrill this music makes for is genuine. I learned from Aesthetic Realism that every time we hear music we have a judgement about its sincerity. Even if our judgement is unconscious, or hard to articulate, it is there. Instinctively people have felt that sincerity has to be present in art, and all good music criticism, from the beginning, has agreed. So how can we be sure, how do we know the sounds we are hearing are honest? Eli Siegel taught that sincerity has a structure. He said, opposites, notably power and grace, are one whenever expression is sincere. The meaning of this for music and for life is very large. For the first time sincerity can be studied because its basis has been seen. There is a trend in modern music, which Prokofiev's

Biography, photograph, principle works concert and film music, recommendations and reviews. Home Classical Other Styles Original ... Reviews Composer Back
Sergei Prokofiev (1891 - 1953) Prokofiev travelled to Japan, to the United States, and to the European capitals of London and Paris. These travels gave him opportunities to learn new ideas, but also to demonstrate his talents to new audiences. He met Stravinsky, and worked on a number of ideas for ballet material for Diaghilev. He eventually settled in the West and remained there for some 15 years where he relished the artistic freedom and stimulation, and he produced a number of major works during this time. Film music was in its formative years at this time, and Prokofiev was quick to realise its potential, even visiting Hollywood at one time. However after some visits to the USSR, he decided to return to his friends and home country. He therefore became subject to the same state-defined restrictions as Shostakovich and other artists. Like the younger composer he also stepped over the mark on occasion and was branded a "formalist" before apologies and conformist material re-established a secure position, though he was never able to fully express himself under these conditions. Ironically he died on the same day as Stalin. Prokofiev's music: Alexander Nevsky . Other selected works include the following:
  • War and Peace and The Love of Three Oranges - operas Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet - ballets, the latter is definitely worth a visit if the opportunity arises - you won't be disappointed
