Visions Fugitives Op.22

Prokofiev: Visions Fugitives, Op. 22

The Visions Fugitives (1915-17) are prefaced by some lines of Konstantin Balmont’s: "In every fugitive vision I see worlds, / Full of the changing play of rainbow hues." In keeping with such fantasy, Prokofiev varies colour and mood with chameleon-like rapidity, and Pittoresco Ridicolosamente and Lento irrealmente are among his more idiosyncratic headings. Nos. 14-16 are Feroce, Inquieto and Dolente, and all three suggest the way a violent and malignant quality is never far below the surface where Russian fairy-tales or fugitive visions are concerned.
