Sergei or Gabriel Prokofiev??
« on: July 05, 2014, 04:56:28 PM »
Yes, yes...I know it isn't fair to compare the two.  But I adore Sergei and haven't heard anything from his grandson Gabriel.  I see Gabriel's Violin Concerto will be performed at this years BBC Proms.  Basically, for those of us who adore the grandfather, how do we approach the grandson? Is there any similarity?  I am looking for an intro to Gabriel Prokofiev appreciation (without getting distracted by his famous last name).

Gabriel's music is not at all like his grandfather's, you will have to appreciate it on it's own terms. I shall listen to the violin concerto with interest.
