Athletic Proportions – TimeOFF

On July 17, Prokofiev’s “Music for Athletes” will receive its long-deserved world premiere during the Golandsky Institute International Piano Festival at Princeton University. Simon Morrison, professor of music at the university and an expert in Russian and French music, restored the score with permission of the Sergei Prokofiev Estate and the Russian State Archive of Literature and Art. The “Music for Athletes” is one of several unknown Prokofiev scores, works that have yet to be recorded or performed intact. Russian pianist Ilya Itin will perform the piece, with choreography for dance ensemble by Jennie Scholick.
