The years of civil war in Russia from 1917 to 1920 were appalling, many composers including Prokofiev left while they could. However, Myaskovsky and Roslavets stayed.
Despite opposition from those who felt that music's goal in the new regime was to be both understood and performed by the masses, the pair enjoyed, for a few years, the freedom to compose as they pleased. With Donald Macleod.
