The introduction looks at the factors that attracted Prokofiev to film music, including large, diverse audiences and technological sophistication. It also explores Prokofiev's wish to compose “serious” music for a mass audience, a self-imposed creative challenge that he revisited and reformulated with each film commission he accepted.

Keywords:   mass music, new simplicity, studio protocol
