Composer: Sergej Prokofiev

The wayward Prokofiev#78. A long-running docudrama about one of the most prominent and distinctive composers of the 20th century.

During ‘the wayward Prokofiev’ we focus our attention on Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev for one hour every two weeks. Prokofiev was without a doubt one of the biggest composers of the 20th century.

In today’s episode: a patriotic cantata, a violin piece for conservatory students, and his final opera, which, despite good intentions, did not appeal to the Ministry of Culture.
