Prokofiev, Sergei

Sergei Prokofiev was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. He was one of the pioneers of music from the 20th century. He was born in 1891 in Ukraine. Early on, it became evident that he was a talented guitarist. He had a mother who was an experienced pianist who inspired him to learn to play the piano. Sergei started to write in the fifth grade. When he grew older, he married and relocated to St. Petersburg, the city where he had been taught music.

After he graduated from college, Prokofiev traveled across Europe to research music. At the start of World War I in 1914, living and working in Russia was challenging. That is when Igor Prokofiev left the region. Eventually, Paris became his primary residence, but he spent time in the United States and the Bavarian Alps. Moreover, after Prokofiev was banished from Russia, he longed to return to his birthplace. He took a big decision by moving to the Soviet Union in 1936. Prokofiev has the potential to use music to convey a convincing narrative. One of his most well-known works is Peter and the Wolf, a Russian children's ballet with music composed by Stravinsky. Unlike symphonic music, Prokofiev was also interested in operas, ballets, and movie scores.
