Series I: Music Manuscripts, 1899-1953; 1970s

This series contains complete works, drafts, sketches, and notes for Prokofiev's musical works: 58 original manuscripts, 153 photocopies, 105 microfilm, and 57 digital items. The material is dated as early as 1899 and as late as 1953, with some items containing annotations added after Prokofiev's death.

The music manuscripts have been thoroughly cataloged to provide information about format, genre, material features, and provenance. Terms include:

Document type: divides manuscripts based on whether they consist of notated music or text.

Format: describes the technology used to produce each item as well as its stage of publication (i.e manuscript, typescript, publication).

Genre: categorizes the musical works themselves (i.e opera, ballet, motion picture music, incidental music, orchestral music, songs with orchestra, symphony, choruses with orchestra, band music, chamber music, instrumental music, songs, piano music).

Content type: if notated music, describes the way the work is scored: full score, short score, short score with instrumental annotations, piano score, piano score with instrumental annotations, arrangement, original workings, vocal score. If text, divides items into categories: libretto, screenplay, concert program, catalog, notes.

Part: describes the completeness of each item (i.e. complete, part, fragment, unknown, various).

Version: describes the stage of creative production shown in each manuscript (i.e. sketch, final, draft).

Subseries I.1: Original Manuscripts 1910-1934

58 original items: complete works, drafts, sketches, and notes, dated from 1910 to 1934, many of which are written or annotated in Prokofiev's own hand. Highlights include: the sketches, full score, and symphonic suite of The Prodigal Son, sketches and full score of Sur le Borysthène, the full score of Four Portraits (symphonic suite from The Gambler), the original workings, orchestral sketches and full score of Egyptian Nights, the draft full score of Symphony No. 3 with references to The Fiery Angel, the original workings for the Symphonic Song, sketches and drafts of Piano Concerto No. 4 and No. 5, and scores for the piano pieces Choses en soi, Two Sonatinas Op. 54, and Thoughts (or Pensées ) Op. 62.

The archive also contains three sketchbooks of musical ideas kept by Prokofiev during the years 1919, 1929 and 1931, and four untitled folders of loose sketches and notes.

Notes: Work completed by Vladimir Blok, based on Prokofiev's sketches. Includes a preface by Blok explaining the reconstructive process. The parts by Prokofiev are the exposition and the beginning of the development. Blok has continued the development, appended a literal reprise of the first part of the exposition, connected it with a surviving sketch of the recapitulation and then recapitulated the remaining themes of the exposition. Prokofiev's tempo and dynamic markings are indicated with asterisks. Published in Moscow in 1973. Fingerings and bowings in this edition by N. (probably Natalia) Gutman. Wrong opus number printed on the title page, and then corrected in pencil (on the copy) to 134. The title page contains the following hand-written inscription in Russian dated August 21, 1973 from Blok to one Lola Feigin: "Дорогому Лёля Фейгину от одного из многих отнюдь не-Прокофьевых с сердечнни приветем."

Notes: Work completed by Vladimir Blok, based on Prokofiev's sketches. Includes a preface by Blok explaining the reconstructive process. The parts by Prokofiev are the exposition and the beginning of the development. Blok has continued the development, appended a literal reprise of the first part of the exposition, connected it with a surviving sketch of the recapitulation and then recapitulated the remaining themes of the exposition. Prokofiev's tempo and dynamic markings are indicated with asterisks. Published in Moscow in 1973. Fingerings and bowings in this edition by N. (probably Natalia) Gutman. Wrong opus number printed on the title page, and then corrected in pencil (on the copy) to 134. The title page contains the following hand-written inscription in Russian dated August 21, 1973 from Blok to one Lola Feigin: "Дорогому Лёля Фейгину от одного из многих отнюдь не-Прокофьевых с сердечнни приветем."
