This record gives us a survey of Russian music of the twenties in all its diversity, its complexity and all its ambivalence, and affords a glimpse of numerous phenomena with a bearing on analogous processes in western culture of the period. Russian music of the first post-revolutionary decade is here represented by the works of three composers of totally different personalities and scope : Sergey Prokofiev, the young iconoclast, the revolutionary who burst upon the traditional musical scene and, as Mayakovsky said, asserted himself "with weight, brutality and ostentation"; Vladimir Shcherbachov, the heir of the academic traditions of the Saint Petersburg school; and Nikolay Roslavets, that marvellous Russian artist who, after a period of unjust oblivion, has today become the centre of constantly growing interest on the part of music lovers and musicologists.
