About

Sergei Prokofiev was so musically precocious that no less a figure than Reinhold GliŤre was employed as his live-in tutor. GliŤreís lessons proved to be both rigorous and inspiring and the young Prokofiev wrote a delightful sequence of works for the piano. Revealing an increasing command of harmony, these miniatures show why he was, at the age of thirteen, the youngest ever student to be enrolled at the St Petersburg Conservatoire. Old Grandmotherís Tales, op.31, written in New York in 1918, is suffused with nostalgia, while the Six Pieces, op.52, are vivid arrangements of some of his earlier works.
