Sergey Prokofiev

April 23, 1891 - March 5, 1953
born in Russia, composed during the Modern period
Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953) was among the most prolific and original composers of the first half of the 20th century, excelling in virtually every musical genre. Many of his early works were modernist, and like many Russian artists, he was censored during the Soviet regime, but he was able to adapt to its restrictions while retaining his artistic integrity. His best-known works include the cantata Alexander Nevsky, the film score Lieutenant Kijé, the ballet Romeo and Juliet, and his "Classical" and Fifth symphonies. His children's tale Peter and the Wolf is one of the most familiar and beloved pieces of 20th century music. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

So tense, so beautiful. Great for ballets.

Nancy is correct, this is the soul of the play and the music. One can just hear the hidebound, heavy handed attitude of the Capulets in the theme. Great music, thanx Pandora..... .

I am not in least interested in who else enjoys this music, I do, that is what counts.

This IS the soul of the play! And perhaps one of Mercutio's dreams.

I think the Cleveland Orchestra once did Nevsky Cantata. They do everything so well!

That passage in Romeo & Juliet is just what romantic music should be - desperate, frenetic, and a little psycho. I LOVE him.

Stephen Eddins leaves out the Third Piano Concerto and the First Violin Concerto in his biographical comments. These are great masterpieces , and are much more well known than Alexander Nevsky, which has never been programmed by any American symphony orchestra, to my knowledge, while the pieces I have mentioned are frequently programmed and celebrated.

I saw Lugansky playing Rachmaninov and Prokofiev at the Gilmore Festival and he was absolutely amazing.

Head over heels in love with Prokofiev since insisting my mom play Peter and the Wolf every single day for a good chunk of my sixth year of life - 'til the gift she'd given me of that record drove her plum bonkers, and she bought me loads of other Prokofiev delights. Love that mom of mine.

I enjoy the R&J sounds, as well as his emotionally inspired other pieces.

Most evocative of the "Modern Russians" He also has wonderful, lilting folk dances. I love falling asleep listening to Prokofiev and Edvard Grieg

The Civilization V music theme when playing as Russia sounds suspiciously like this.

I, for one, fully appreciate him. A long flight to Argentina was made tollerable by the entire Romeo & Juliet ballet. . . thx

I really do wish more people could appreciate Prokofiev as much as we do.

I am part of the Los Angeles children's chorus and LA opera organization s I feel that when I had to sing Juliet's part in Romeo and Juliet and the ballet performers went on and danced this part a new world opened up in my eyes

Prokofiev had to hire people for his orchestratio n s he found it so difficult, according to Shostakovich (who might be exaggerating as was his way).

Prokofiev's 5th symphony is perhaps my favorite piece of music any fan of his should listen to it.

Dave--agreed , and his work is amazing. Be careful, though...one of the reasons many don't listen to classical music is the I know best review. Do you want a world where the Beatles hopelessly simple I Saw Her Standing There never existed? Perhaps, but I'm glad it's in the rotation.

For anyone who thinks classical music is boring, listen to Lt. Kife and you will realize most of modern pop, which, for the most part is simply based on three chords (the 1st, 4th and 5th of the major scale) is hopelessly based on a very simple cookie cutter structure, repeated in most songs today. Prokofiev's genius is all the more evident when you consider the restrictions placed on him under Communism.

Loved his work since I was a child. Death of Tybalt from Romeo and Juliet is one of my favorite movements ever.

He is the Einstein of composers, like Igor Stravinsky, way ahead of his
contemporari e s . Philip Glass is also of the species and greatly inspired
by them especially when I am painting or drawing. James,
