Just trying to shake things up a bit. I'm sure this category will really get the creative juices flowing. Come on, Sergei Prokofiev fans, now is your time to shine!

On January 13, 1945, at exactly 9:30pm, an announcer strode to the centre of the stage at Moscow Conservatory's Grand Hall and declared: "In the name of the Fatherland there will be a salute to the gallant warriors fo the First Ukrainian front, who have broken the defenses of the Germans! Twent volleys of artillery from 224 guns!" After volleys Sergei Prokofiev took the podium and conducted the first performance of his Symphony #5.

I saw this topic, grabbed this Prokofiev CD and it immediately inspired me to think about what music is really about. Keep it up.

I'm gonna hang here until that loser leaves the Shostakovich board. I have no problem talking about Prokofiev. In fact, right now I'm listening to the Alexander Nevsky Cantata, Op.78. That's some of the best film music around.

Hey, opus_125, regardless of what people say, I don't think you're a pervert. You were just being nice. Let's get back to talking about music. I listened earlier to the Sinfonia Concertante with Yo Yo Ma on Cello. It's a really nice piece but overly long.

And don't be too hard on 2Gud2BTrufan... that band sells more albums in one week than our entire classical division in one year.

Did you all know that Prokofiev was considered an adequate composer coming out of school and an excellent pianist? His professors didn't think he had a future as a composer. Just goes to show how nobody knows nothing about nothing.

I realize I should be out doing something on a Saturday night instead of posting about Prokofiev. But I don't have a life. But I do have knowledge - just the kind of knowledge that chicks don't dig.

You know what I did last night, poulenc? I went to a party at Berry Gordy's house. I would have much rather spent the night listening to Prokofiev than dealing with all these famous musicians big egos. So don't fret and think that listening to classical music means you have no life.

I wish I knew how to edit these messages. I really didn't mean to sound so mean... I was genuinely pleased by your response, Emily. Please disregard my last post. I'm sorry, that's terrible.

Back to Prokofiev, I'm listening to a CD of his first two string quartets. Very raw, very cool.

No problem, poulenc. I realize sometimes I make my life to be so horrible, when actually, I'm the head of a huge music company - what do I have to complain out? Are you an American living in Paris? Or are you French?

I was listening to Guns 'n Roses tonight and getting drunk. Things are really tough at work now. I hope I can survive the summer. Anyway, in my world, classical artists would sell as much as unou12 or Brittany Spears. But nobody seems to live in my world.

Anyone want to talk about Prokofiev's Piano Sonatas?
