    Prokofiev’s birthday in the old style calendar is April 11, 1891. The new calendar, April 23.

    WHAT THE HECK HOW DID I MISS PROKOFIEV'S BIRTHDAY!? IT COMPLETELY BLEW MY MIND!

    I guess on April 23 it was a super busy day, being at the performing arts center at my college for 10 hours. Yeah, I guess that's how I celebrated.

    Ohh he's a Finn too. More cool Finns coming to international light these days.

    Ive only heard Segerstam's 212th. He's going to overtake Rowan Taylor soon I hear. 265 symphonies is still the record.

    I have it on good authority that Johannes and Peter had a love affair.

    I'm trying to build his reputation! Everyone used to pick on him because he'd never scored with the ladies - no notches on his bed-post and all that - but, in fact, he had it off with a Russian! A man, yes, but that's even more of a conquest. It doesn't surprise me that he didn't brag and tell anyone though - we all know Brahms was extremely humble.
