  1. Hey! I made a new Group! Please Join!

    I figured it was about time I made a group for Russian composers here and put my footprint on this forum in that way. I'm going to share more in-depth things I've found in my research. I actually have a number of friends on this website called Turntable that have joined me in discovering new Russian music (we all share our own discoveries in collective sessions of music). Whatever catches my eye(ear) there, I will share here. Otherwise, the Group is for discussion and sharing. Everyone who is interested
  2. Music-Related Rave.

    Have you even experienced a time where you sorta left a composer alone, or didn't listen to a lot of their works, and now you come back to them and you love them anew? That's how I've been the last few days.


    Besides Prokofiev and Shostakovich, he's my first love. Whereas the other 2 are like brilliant new and exciting acquaintances (to put that lightly), Glazunov is now a dear old friend.

    Let me just share with you why I'm such an advocate

  3. Musical Analysis: Sergei Prokofiev Part 2


    Impressionist. That's probably the best descriptive term for him. Prokofiev did so many things in his music that simply don't make sense if one were to look at each piece of the puzzle. One has to see the complete picture to try to understand the ideas he's trying to communicate. In this way, harmony often overrides melody because an idea doesn't always need a melody. Yet Prokofiev has a clever way of combining melody with unusual harmony sometimes.

  4. 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.


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


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