Prokofiev Reviews

'... A clear and well-researched timeline of Prokofiev's development as a composer and his increasingly tortuous relationship with the Soviet authorities. There is also much fascinating material on his work in film, especially the collaborations with Eisenstein. The book is beautifully made, with well-reproduced photographs, and the text is strewn with useful historical nuggets on such subjects as futurism, the Russian Civil War and synaesthesia, and brief biographies of important contemporaries.' -- Steven Poole The Guardian 'This book inspires admiring reflection' Neue Zurcher Zeitung
