Prokofiev Piano sonata no.4/mov.1
Prokofiev Piano sonata no.4/mov.1 Composer: Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev Performer: Yefim Bronfman ******************************* Prokofiev displayed unusual musical abilities by the age of five. His first piano composition to be written down (by his mother), an 'Indian Gallop', was in the key of F Lydian (F major with a B natural instead of B flat) as the young Prokofiev did not like to touch the black keys.[citation needed] By the age of seven, he had also learned to play chess. Much like music, chess would remain a passion his entire life, and he became acquainted with world chess champions Capablanca and Botvinnik. At the age of nine he was composing his first opera,[2] The Giant, as well as an overture and miscellaneous pieces. In 1902 Prokofiev's mother obtained an audience with Sergei Taneyev, director of the Moscow Conservatoire. Taneyev suggested that Prokofiev should start lessons in composition with Alexander Goldenweiser, who declined, and Reinhold Glière.[3] Glière visited Prokofiev in Sontsivka twice during the summer to teach him.[4] By then Prokofiev had already produced a number of innovative pieces.

Prokofiev, Cendrillon, amoroso, Rozhdestvensky
Prokofiev, Cendrillon, amoroso, Rozhdestvensky Ce jour là à la lumière gelée nous étions cinq à errer dans la montagne des cristaux. Nous parlions de ´nos inquiétudes` probablement parce que le visiteur des cieux avait transformé le bois exactement de la même manière que le temps modèle les souvennirs. Marina, Alexandra, Nikos, JL et moi. The photos (free of digital effects) show a poor reminiscence of the new impressions happily classified in our memories. Sergei Prokofiev (1892-1953) finished composing his ballet in 3 acts Cendrillon in 1944. Next year Galina Ulanova danced the première. Amoroso is the finale of the ballet and we can easily listen to the ample, loving and entangling movements of the dancers in this wonderful pas de deux. Gennadi Rozhdestvensky (born in 1931) conducts the USSR Radio Symphonic Orchestra. It was in 1982. Enjoy.
