Music by Prokofiev.



  • Ballet Suites, and more.

Sergei Prokofiev was a highly creative composer. I have come to love a lot of his music, particularly his two violin concertos. His ballets are very well known, and his wonderful first symphony was created in the style of Mozart and Haydn.

On this CD, one can hear much of Prokofiev’s ballet and orchestral music, as listed below:


  • Romeo and Juliet – Suite No. 2, Op. 64b (excerpts)
  • Symphony #1, Op. 25 ‘Classical’
  • Romeo and Juliet – Suite No. 1, Op. 64a (excerpts)

Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Yuri Simonov conducting.

Some of the tracks on this recording are:
