Under Diaghilev's guidance, Prokofiev chose his subject from a collection of folktales by the ethnographer Alexander Afanasyev; [31] the story, concerning a buffoon and a series of confidence tricks he performs, had been previously suggested to Diaghilev by Igor Stravinsky as a possible subject for a ballet, and Diaghilev and his choreographer Léonide Massine helped Prokofiev to shape this into a ballet scenario. [32] Prokofiev's relative lack of experience in ballet composing meant he subsequently agreed to revise the ballet extensively in the 1920s, following Diaghilev's detailed critique of the score, [33] prior to its first production. [34] The ballet's premiere in Paris on 17 May 1921 was a huge success and was greeted with great admiration by an audience that included Jean Cocteau, Igor Stravinsky and Maurice Ravel.

Because of the increasing economic deprivation of Europe, Prokofiev returned to Russia in 1936. In the 1840s he began studying at the Paris Conservatoire, and a short time later after his second symphony was published he became good friends with Hector Berlioz.

And part of this is acknowledging that people have been making music in this strange, roundabout way for a thousand years.
