Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is a hip-hop collision with classical music. Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev -- you know, the guy who wrote Peter and the Wolf -- has written a piece for orchestra and turntables, for the London-based artist DJ Yoda. Prokofiev loves placing contemporary classical music (his own and that of others) in clubs rather than concert halls. He's a classically trained composer, but he also produces and performs electronic and hip-hop music. His concerto doesn't take itself too seriously: Amid the scratching and beat juggling, you can hear processed coughs, sputters and flights of jazz."
