April 23, 1891: Sergei Prokofiev is born.
As a young man, the talented Prokofiev was regarded as rebellious and eccentric, wowing the cosmopolitan musical community of St. Petersburg with his controversial compositions - although as the revolution neared, such innovations became more popularly accepted. When it finally came in early 1917, Prokofiev apparently found this political revolution less tasteful than his musical revolution, and so he fled to the United States the next year.
It was in the United States that the piece we have here - his Piano Concerto No. 3 - first premiered. This particular recording was performed by the composer himself, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra (the piece in its entirety can be heard here). Prolific throughout his life, Prokofiev mastered all manner of musical form (even dabbling in film scores), and his extensive body of work ensured him a place as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century.
(Also, a thank you to my musically-inclined friend Jenny for pointing me in the direction of a suitable piece.)
