CLASSICAL OPUS no.17

Sergei Prokofiev – “Suite from Love for Three Oranges”

セルゲイ・プロコフィエフ – 「三つのオレンジへの恋からのスイート」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 2 minutes

Prokofiev offers here a soaring, freakout cortège of highly animated colossi.  He excels in grotesque, scurrilous treatment of the progression, laden with volatile brass-band style toxicity.  The diatonic genius, who died in Moscow on the same day as Stalin, suffered from the commercial failure of this piece, which was composed while he still lived in the US.

A REFLECTION

Why am I without joy,

achieving everything,

but grasping

nothing at all?
