About This Item

PROKOFIEV, SERGEI. (1891-1953). Russian composer and pianist. AMusQS. ("Serge Prokofieff"). ½p. Small 8vo. N.p., 1935. One measure of the first six notes from the opening melody of the first movement of his Piano Concerto No. 3, Opus 26.

A musical prodigy, Prokofiev began his studies at the St. Petersburg Conservatory at the age of 13, by which point he had already composed four operas. Though he found much of his education boring, it was during this time that Prokofiev began experimenting with composition, producing a series of modernistic works, including his First Piano Concerto, which took first prize in the his conservatory's piano competition. His iconoclastic and dissonant works earned him world renown and led to several compositions commissioned by the Ballets Russes. His fame grew following the 1917 revolution as he performed and conducted throughout the United States and Europe. Prokofiev composed a total of five piano concertos, of which the third, completed in 1921, is his most popular. Among his other well-known works are Peter and the Wolf, Ivan the Terrible, The Fiery Angel, and Romeo and Juliet.

Penned in the upper half of a blank album page. A small paper remnant is pasted several inches below the signature and can be easily framed out or trimmed as can a slightly irregular right edge where the page was removed from the album. There are several unidentified signatures on the verso; in fine condition. A beautifully penned example from one of the composer's most famous works.
