About

If you only know Sergei Prokofiev as a composer of ballet (Romeo and Juliet), opera (War and Peace), symphonies (seven of them), or children's pieces (Peter and the Wolf), you're in for a pleasant surprise when you encounter his score for Sergei Eisenstein's 1938 Russian propaganda film, Alexander Nevsky. Learning about the music is only half of the story. When the likes of Stalin, Hitler, Churchill, and FDR became involved, the fate of Nevsky took on as many twists and turns as the plot of any political thriller by Tom Clancy. NSO cellist Yvonne Caruthers is your guide to the intriguing world of Alexander Nevsky.
