9780571161584: Soviet Diary, 1927 and Other Writings

To commemorate the centenary of Prokofiev's birth, the composer's son Oleg has put together this anthology of writings by Prokofiev himself. This collection includes the hitherto unpublished Soviet diary (1927) which, for reasons of political expediency, was held by the Prokofiev family for 50 years before they would allow it to be released. The diary records Prokofiev's return to Soviet Russia as a visiting celebrity after ten years in exile. With eyes refreshed by his banishment he offers glimpses of the Soviet Russia of the 1920s. The volume also contains fragments of several short stories, and an early autobiography, published many years ago in the Soviet Union and long since unavailable.

From Library Journal:

Reading a diary is a potentially dreary experience. It can be self-referring, repetitive, and mundane. But this colorful and informative example by the great Russian composer (1891-1953) is an exception, its author being blessed with a considerable literary gift. A secret document that surfaced in 1989, it covers a concert tour of the Soviet Union which Prokofiev undertook several years before his repatriation in 1934. Mixed in with discussions about daily events are assessments about Soviet music and critical observations about the fledgling Communist state, although the latter are carefully and obliquely expressed. Other writings in the volume include five short stories (some incomplete) and an autobiography. The stories are written with keen psychological insight and reveal a lively and occasionally surreal imagination. The autobiography, first published in 1956 and "extensively revised" here, complements the much longer Prokofiev by Prokofiev ( LJ 4/15/79), which dealt with his early life to 1909.
