A shot of Prokofjev
Who is Prokofjev?
Prokofjev is one of the great Russian composers, known for his abundance of self-confdence. He was a true hard-liner in sticking to the ‘rules’ of classical music. No, he was not a great innovator, but that’s OK, because doing something extremely well can be just as admirable as innovation. He as a family man, a close friend of Stravinsky, and get this, his frst record was recorded at the world-famous Abbey Road studios.
