Description

Graham FAWCETT presents a profile of the collaboration between Sergei PROKOFIEV and Anna AKHMATOVA despite them never meeting.

Sergei Prokofiev and Anna Akhmatova were born within two years of each other; they strove for the same artistic ideals and for months at a time they lived in the same neighbourhood in St Petersburg. During five days in November 1916, Prokofiev set music to Akhmatova's early poems. And yet they never met. Readers: Carole BOYD and Nigel Anthony. Singer: Carole FARLEY. Written and presented by Graham FAWCETT, produced by John Theocharis.
