The Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev was one of the giants of 20th century music. His works ranged from ballets - including Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet - to film music, such as Lieutenant Kije and Alexander Nevsky.
At the end of June 1932, Prokofiev made a record for the first time in his life at London's famous Abbey Road studios. He recorded his third Piano Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra. On 28 June, HRH Prince George (later the Duke of Kent) visited the studios and 'left immediately, perhaps astonished by the slightly aggressive style of the music.'
