comment Prokofiev's style
I think one of the reasons Prokoviev is underrated and understudied (especially by american musicologists) is that he decided to come back living in the USSR in the 1930s. He suffered a lot from this personally in the 1940s. The most important is that his music is played very frequently.

comment What to play instead of chords with an informal group?
Just to be sure: you play a tenor banjo or another kind of 4-string banjo?

comment When did keyboard partitions start to use the G-clef for the upper staff ?
@Willie Wong: I certainly would, but they are behind a paywall.

comment When is it proper (if ever) to extend time signatures (8/4 vs 4/4)?
@neilfein: I believe that ogerard has already answered for me, but I have tried to edit my answer in order to downplay :-) the 'pace' aspect which I agree might be confusing in a first approach.
