Sergey Prokofiev

Could anybody give me helpful introduction to this composer? I haven't really looked into this composer too deeply and I would like to. Could anybody offer some suggestions as to which works I should start with, which are his best, and your favorites? Also do you play any? Thanks for your help!

Prokofiev is excellent.

There are numerous threads dealing with him in the forum. Have a look at the last five or six posts of this one, where I give some suggestions:

I dont play too much Prokofiev because it will drive my family crazy :o.  I once tried the "March from 'The love for 3 oranges'", but gave it up.  Toccata OP.11 is very difficult.  Try un suggestion diabolique. :D

try the sonatas or the visions fugitive, or one of the five great piano concertos, I also love the overture on a hebrew theme for Clarinet Piano and string quartet
