Gabriel Prokofiev

Gabriel Prokofiev Biography (Wikipedia)

Gabriel Prokofiev (born 1975 in London, UK) is a British composer, producer, DJ, and Artistic Director of the Nonclassical record label and club night who creates music that both embraces and challenges western classical traditions.

Gabriel Prokofiev was born in 1975 to an English mother and Russian father Oleg Prokofiev, and is the grandson of the 20th-century composer Sergei Prokofiev. He studied composition at both Birmingham and York universities, but eschewed classical music for electronica, and became a producer of Dance, Electro, Hip-hop & Grime music under a variety of guises, producing various artists & bands including, Spektrum, Lady Sovereign, Envy & Shystie. His work in merging classical with electronica has been recognized by the Financial Times as being “in the guard's van of redefining classical music conventions.”

He founded the independent record label and club night Nonclassical in 2003 and returned to his classical roots, composing String Quartet No. 1 for the Elysian Quartet [1], which he released on Nonclassical, complete with remixes of the original quartet. His other compositions include 2nd and 3rd String Quartets, a collection of piano pieces, Piano Book, for Russian virtuoso GéNIA, and Concerto for Turntables & Orchestra (2006) which was premiered by Mr Switch at the 2011 BBC Proms, with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain under Vladimir Jurowski and toured by the BBC Concert Orchestra as part of its educational programme. His Concerto for Trumpet, Percussion, Turntables and Orchestra (2014), was premiered by Marie Bédat (trumpet), Chantal Aguer (percussion), DJ Mr Switch (turntables) and the fr:Orchestre de Pau Pays de Béarn: under Faycal Karoui at the fr:Palais Beaumont Centre de Congrès, Pau, France. Prokofiev’s work as a composer, producer and founder of the Nonclassical label has capitalized on a growing interest to develop a fresh approach to the presentation, dissemination and consumption of classical music.
