115 Yesterday

A day late, but happy birthday Sergei! That's Sergei Prokofiev of course, and just imagine, if he'd known about the South Sea Diet, or the Greek Olive Binge, or the Liver Cleansing Autopsy, he'd still be with us today. And how modern, and not out of place! His death was 53 years ago, yet try taking his Piano Sonata number 1, opus 1, for a spin - it could have been written yesterday! Look, the guy's harsh, acerbic, sarcastic, a real intellectual composer, but sometimes sparing is good.

Make today a Prokofiev day, and while you're there here's a fine link to PDFs of his piano music, including the all-important 9 sonatas.
