    Book summary:

    European comics artist Miguelanxo Prado describes his two life passions as "listening to and inventing stores, as well as painting." In this adaptation of the classic folk tale by Sergei Prokofiev, Prado combines these passions into a glorious work of art. The soft, shadowy colors give this redition of Peter and the Wolf the look of something from another time and place. The book begins with two full-page paintings. The first is Peter, the duck, the cat, and the bird staring into the dark woods; the point of view is from behind them, with the reader staring into the woods with them. Turn the page and you'll see the same scene from the opposite point of view, from within the woods, looking out at them. The depiction is powerfully stirring, and as Prado himself says in his introduction: "While folk tales are usually meant for children, they nonetheless possess a fascinating, evocative power for adults." Whether Peter and the Wolf is for you or your child, Prado's version is a great addition to your bookshelf.

    Book summary:

    After his training as a concert pianist at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, Sergei Prokofiev played this single-movement concerto for his final examination. The concerto opens with a grandiose theme that unifies the entire work. Four contrasting sections are fashioned into a three-part sonata design, climaxing in a brilliant solo cadenza. Impressed with the young composer's unique style, the judges awarded Prokofiev the coveted Rubinstein prize.
    This early work exhibits all the characteristics of Prokofiev's later achievements, including memorable melodies, propulsive rhythms, and an impish sense of humor. Reprinted from an authoritative source, this affordable, large-format volume is suitable for use by conductors, students, pianists, and all admirers of the twentieth-century master.

    Book summary:

    Alfred Music Publishing is the world's largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational, reference, pop, and performance materials for teachers, students, professionals, and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument, style, and difficulty level.

    These four sonatas abound in the qualities that Prokofiev himself considered the principal elements of his art: classicism, innovation, rhythmic vitality, lyricism, and sardonic humor. Reproduced from authoritative editions, this collection features Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 1 (1909), a piece of dramatic and romantic beauty; Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 14 (1912), the 21-year-old composer's masterpiece in four movements; Sonata No. 3 in A minor, Op. 28 (1917), a brilliant 7-minute score; and Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 29 (1917), an unjustly neglected three-movement sonata considered vintage Prokofiev. Dover original compilation of four works from authoritative editions.

    Book summary:

    THERE IS NO better way to introduce children to classical music than with Prokofievs musical fairy tale of the little boy (played by all the strings of the orchestra) who, with the help of a bird (played by the flute), outsmarted the big, bad wolf (played by the French horns). And now with this book and CD package, children can look and listen all at the same time. A new retelling by Janet Schulman follows the basic story, but with a kinder ending for both the big bad wolf and the argumentative duck. Peter Malones paintings have the luminous quality of old Russian masters. The CD, with music performed by the Cincinnati Pops and word-for-word narration by Peter A. Thomas, was made exclusively for this book and CD package.

    Book summary:

    Completed in 1917, Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1 has long been a favorite of audiences and a requisite work in the repertoire of every serious violin student. This Dover performance edition of the meditative, lyrical score contains a piano reduction and separate violin part.
    Suitable for advanced-intermediate and advanced violinists and students, this piece was characterized by the composer as a "softening of temper" from the tone of his early worksdespite the fact that it was completed amid the tumult of the October Revolution. The concerto premiered the following year at the Paris Opera and a few days later in the newly formed Soviet Union, where it was performed by a pair of teenagers: virtuoso violinist Nathan Milstein and the legendary Vladimir Horowitz, who played the orchestral part on the piano. Reprinted from an authoritative source, this inexpensive edition of Prokofiev's work will delight both performers and listeners.
