while it is probably out there somewhere, i don’t think this piece would be public domain…
so any free version you find online is illegal. if we were to post if here, your question would get deleted and the site hosting it would probably get in trouble.
it’s hard to tell sometimes.
copyright law is pretty confusing, especially with russian music ’cause there was this strange time when copyrights had passed from certain composers to the USSR, and then when the USSR fell apart there was no copyright for a while, and then they made these new retroactive laws to cover it.
there are strange exceptions on occasion, so you will see other pieces by prokofiev that ARE public domain in specific countries. but from what i can see, this one is still under copyright.
