Source Notes

Kassandra K. quotes his autobiography, pub by Foreign Language Publishing house, Moscow, p.15.

Sy Scholfield quotes him in S. Shlifstein, "S. Prokofiev: Autobiography, Articles, Reminiscences" (2000), p. 15: "I WAS BORN in the village of Sontsovka, Yekaterinoslav Gubernia, now Dnepropetrovsk Region, at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11, 1891, Old Style, or April 23 according to the new calendar."

Scholfield notes that various sources quote Nicolas Slonimsky's book, "The Concise Edition of Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians," 8th ed. (New York, Schirmer Books, 1993) which reportedly states that according to Prokofiev's recently discovered birth certificate he was born on 27 April 1891, not 23 April as he believed.
