20世紀叱吒古典樂界的鋼琴演奏家弗拉契米爾.費茲曼(Vladimir Feltsman)出生於1952年的莫斯科，11歲便以獨奏家身份與"莫斯科愛樂樂團(Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra)"合作公開演出，年紀輕輕已發揮出天賦過人的音樂才能，表現一鳴驚人。他於1967年勇奪"布拉格國際協奏曲大賽"首獎，成績更上一層樓，及後入讀"柴可夫斯基音樂院"師承斐利爾(Jacob Flier)學習鋼琴，之後在"莫斯科列寧格勒音樂院"學習指揮，無論是指揮或鋼琴演奏都取得驕人的成就。1971年巴黎舉行的"瑪格麗特隆鋼琴大賽" 中他再度脫穎而出勇奪首獎，瞬即蜚聲國際，更獲<紐約時報(The New York Times)>推許為「一個簡單卻了不起的鋼琴家！」，備受樂界一致推崇。
The legacy of Sergei Prokofiev (1891 - 1953) is by now well explored and universally acknowledged. His music is performed all over the world. It is hard to imagine our musical life without his works, which have become indispensable ‘standards’ on our concert menu.
In addition to his outstanding abilities as a composer, Prokofiev had an incredible melodic gift – a rarity for a twentieth-century composer (Rachmaninoff excepted). It is this lyrical and intimate aspect of his music that is explored in this recording, which has been put together in the manner of an installation of stained glass and attempts to produce a portrait of the composer, when listened to straight through. All the works collected in this album are short, ranging from under one minute to five minutes in length. Vladimir Feltsman
