Do you know Prokofiev?

Maybe not as well as you think.

Prokofiev is the subject of this year's Bard Festival and the times has a very nice write-up.

So the curators of “Prokofiev and His World” at Bard are concerned not with polishing a dull reputation or arguing for greatness but with exploring aspects of the composer’s life — including his involvement with Christian Science and his surprising decision to return to Russia in 1936 — and the musicians and trends that influenced his irresistible brand of tuneful modernism.

And you'll not want to miss visiting the "The Prokofiev Page". Find it here.
