  1. Music Analysis: Sergei Prokofiev Part 1

    This was fun to write.

    There is so much that can be analyzed by Prokofiev, so I will organize it into several sections. I will add onto it over time, perhaps.

    Contents:

    * Orchestration/Instrumentation
    * Melody
    * Harmony
    * Tone/Form

    ORCHESTRATION/INSTRUMENTATION

    It's quite easy to tell what instrument was his favorite: piano. He wrote 9 piano sonatas, 5 piano concertos, a score of piano

  2. Disappeared: Chapters 4, 5

    CHAPTER 4

    It was now January, the bleakest point of the year. But I was in high spirits, because I was expecting any day for Victor to propose to me. He made his love for me so obvious that I was surprised he didn't say it yet. However, Nikolai was despairing. Elena refused to accept any invitations now, but would still let him talk to her.

  4. The Wandering Tower: A Short Story Blog

    I have a lot of likes/dislikes in common with Prokofiev so I've researched. So it was very intriguing to discover that Prokofiev really liked to write short stories (Peter and the Wolf was only one of them). I write my own as well.

    Would anyone here like to see some clips of some of my stories? Some of them don't have names, some do, some are only a page long. It's my habit of always placing the stories in Russia and giving the characters Russian names, as well as building them on
