Any previously unrecorded (SACD) works from the Ukrainian Master are always exciting in prospect. The Gambler and The Stone Flower are well represented on CD so this new SACD is eagerly anticipated even 'though containing only excerpts.

Ukrainian master? Since when?

hiredfox, to title Prokofiev as Ukrainian composer is misleading and incorrect. He was neither Ukrainian by ethnicity nor there was such country as Ukraine in time of his birth. The same way one can call Yves Saint Laurent an Algerian designer, for instance.

All I can say is that Kiril Karabits regards him as a fellow countryman and he was born in Kiev.

Comment by Bruce Zeisel - March 23, 2020 (8 of 9)

Who was born in Kiev? karabits?

According to google, Prokofiev was born in what is now the west of Ukraine, as you yourself said above: Sontsivka.

Comment by hiredfox - March 24, 2020 (9 of 9)

Yes, Kiril Karabits although he now lives in France. See my entry at 3
