Prokofiev established himself at a very early age as a fiery and talented new composer. He tirelessly devoted himself to the search for a new individual musical idiom, his rich creative life coincided with the artistic, cultural and political tumult that informed and influenced the early life of the Soviet Union. As a result, Prokofiev not only made a far-reaching contibution to Russian culture but also to the development of twentieth-century music in general. This volume gives a detailed account of his life and development as a composer, including the heady days of his collaboration with Serge Diaghilev's fabulous Ballets Russes.
