Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953) was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor. He was born in Sontsovka, Russia, and studied music at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. He later served as conductor of various orchestras in Russia and Europe, and he also composed a number of works for orchestra, choir, and other ensembles.
Prokofiev was known for his innovative and expressive compositions, which often incorporated elements of modernism and folk music. He wrote a wide range of music, including seven operas, seven symphonies, choral works, five piano concerts, and nine piano sonatas. Some of his most well-known compositions include the operas “The Love for Three Oranges” and “War and Peace”.
Prokofiev also composed a Toccata for the organ, and some of his compositions have been arranged for the organ, among others parts of “Roméo et Juliette” by Jean-Paul Imbert, and the “March of the three Oranges” by Jean Guillou.
