Description
Sergey Prokofiev (18911953) lived a life caught between East and West, traditional and modern. Born in Russia, where he was seen as a musical rebel, he left Russia in the wake of the Revolution and came to America, then found success in Paris, before returning to the Soviet Union in 1936. But he found the new regime critical of his musical style, and endured condemnation and censorship. Thomas Schipperges examines Prokofiev's charming and witty music in such works as the opera The Love for Three Oranges, the ballet Romeo and Juliet, and the musical fairy tale Peter and the Wolf. Illustrated throughout with color and black and white photos, documents, and reproductions of art, this book from the Life and Times series looks at this influential figure of the 20th century, with a detailed discussion of his works.
