9780714847740: Sergey Prokofiev (20th Century Composers)

Because of the nature of Soviet society, Prokofiev's life has received little attention from biographers. This survey of his life and work contains several hitherto unpublished illustrations of him and much essential reference material.

About the Author:

Daniel Jaffe, a former reviews editor of BBC Music Magazine, is the author of the biography Sergey Prokofiev, and he has lectured and written extensively on Russian music and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and on BBC Four.

Review:

"A thoroughly researched and well-balanced appraisal of Prokofiev's life and works, beautifully presented in tandem with some fascinating and previously unavailable photographic illustrations. Jaffe handles the very difficult task of interweaving narrative and discussion of the works with commendable aplomb... Surely one of the best written books in Phaidon's series."-Classic CD "An extensive biography of one of the 20th century's foremost composers. Daniel Jaffe... has combined an intimate portrait outlining the life and social circle of Sergey Prokofiev with a full account of the political climate that shaped his career."-Bath Chronicle "Here is an excellent introduction to the life, character and music of a man Jaffe rightly describes as one of the best loved yet least known of all 20th century composers."-BBC Music Magazine "In the same series comes Daniel Jaffe's Sergey Prokofiev, concise but remarkably rich in detail about the life of this enigmatic Russian composer whose death was overshadowed by that of Stalin on the same day."-Birmingham Post "Jaffe [...] brings insight into how Prokofiev's life and work intertwined... Reliable... A clear introduction to the composer."-SCRSS [Society of co-operation of Russian & Soviet Studies] "Among modern composer-biographies, Daniel Jaffe's Prokofiev stands out as exemplary."-The Independent Weekend Review On the 20th Century Composers Series "As a series, Phaidon's 20th Century Composers has brought remarkable variety and a welter of information, both necessary and delightfully trivial. Intended both for the general reader and for the more enthusiastically musical."-The Scotsman

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2008 printing. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953) was considered strikingly modern in his day, yet his compositions retain a compelling lyricism and an acerbic wit that have ensured their enduring popularity. Having left his native Russia for the USA and subsequently Paris, he spent the last 17 years of his life in the USSR, where his work was heavily influenced by Stalin s cultural policies. Daniel Jaffe s comprehensive biography offers a detailed examination of this remarkable composer s life and works, in the context of the other cultural luminaries of his day and the political turmoil of early twentieth-century Russia.
