Sergei Prokofiev was born in Sontsovka in the Ukraine on the 23rd of April, 1891. Soon showing a talent for piano and composition, by the time he was fourteen he was attending the St. Petersburg Conservatoire, where he received extensive schooling inpiano, harmony, composition and conducting. Prokofiev was greatly interested in contemporary composers (Reger, dIndy, Debussy and Richard Strauss) and quickly made a name for himself with his revolutionary aesthetic language of great harmonic andrhythmic impact. His compositions were inspired by Symbolism and Futurism, two artistic movements predominate at the time. Prokofiev attracted attention through his early works - the Etudes Op.2 and the Pieces, Op. 3 and 4 - owing to his specialtechnique and percussive treatment of the piano (similar in some respects to Bartok), although he was also capable of rich melodic invention.Actually composed in 1907-08, before his Four Etudes for Piano Op. 2, Prokofiev's Four Pieces for Piano, Op. 3 and 4 were only published in 1911. Concert pieces, some show Scriabin's influence on the composer, especially in the titles.

Sergei Prokofiews Kompositionen waren inspiriert vom Symbolismus und Futurismus, zwei vorherrschenden Stromungen seiner Zeit. Aufmerksamkeit erlangte er mit seinen fruhen Werken - den Etuden op. 2 und den Stucken op. 3 und 4. Das lag an der darinverwendeten speziellen Klaviertechnik und dem perkussiven Umgang mit dem Instrument (was in mancherlei Hinsicht an Bartok erinnerte), wobei Prokofiew auch uber eine reiche melodische Erfindungsgabe verfugte.Prokofiews Vier Stucke fur Klavier op. 3 und 4 wurden in den Jahren 1907-1908 komponiert - also vor seinen Vier Etuden fur Klavier op. 3 und 4 -, jedoch erst 1911 veroffentlicht. Besonders in den Titeln einiger dieser Konzertstucke ist der EinflussSkrjabins erkennbar.
