Serge Prokofiev (1891-1953) was a Ukrainian-born Soviet composer, pianist and conductor. He is best remembered for his 1936 children’s theatrical work, Peter And The Wolf, but he also wrote several operas, symphonies, ballets and concertos. He was a leading figure in the Neoclassical movement; his dissonant harmonies and virtuosic style frequently shocked audiences and helped establish him as one of the foremost composers of his generation.
