In 1936, after nearly 20 years in the West, Prokofiev returned to his native Russia, now the Soviet Union, where he found it more difficult than he had thought to write music to please the Communist authorities. But when war came in 1941, the atmosphere changed. The regime needed artists to inspire and lead. Prokofiev played his part, and, as the tide of war turned in 1944, he created one of his most paradoxical and yet melodious masterpieces.
