Co-sponsored by the Columbia University Rare Book and Manuscripts Library, the Serge Prokofiev Foundation, and the Columbia Department of Music.
This recital of popular and rare works by Serge Prokofiev, featuring soprano Erika Baikoff and pianists Sergei Dreznin and Barbara Nissman, celebrates the opening of the Prokofiev Archive at Columbia's Rare Book and Manuscripts Library. The musicians will be joined by members of the Prokofiev family for performances of The Ugly Duckling, the Sixth Piano Sonata, and several rarely-heard works from the Archive.

Simon Morrison, the Foundation's president and professor of musicology at Princeton University, says: "The works featured on the program for this recital--some heard for the first time in many decades--remind us of the many facets of Prokofiev's life and work that await discovery. Such discoveries will be considerably facilitated by the new consolidation of the composer's archives at Columbia."
