Dmitri Shostakovich in Russia - 1957
from Dmitry Shostakovich-About Himself and His Times, page 193:
However often one listens to Prokofiev’s music, though one feels one knows every note, still one discovers more and more new beauty, depth, unfading freshness and originality. Like every artist of great talent, Prokofiev is truly inexhaustible. / Such were my thoughts as I watched the Kirov Theatre’s wonderful recent production of Prokofiev’s ballet The Stone Flower. I found countless new and interesting facets in this marvellous work.
