A musical genius with human failings...both sides of the beloved composer are revealed in this striking account of his 1936 return to Russia and its tragic consequences. Oliver Becker takes as his starting point a diary, recently discovered in 1989, which Prokofiev kept during his trip to Russia in 1927.
