CLASSICAL OPUS no.1

Sergei Prokofiev – “Dance of the Knights (Romeo and Juliet, no.13)”

セルゲイ・プロコフィエフ – 「騎士団のダンス(ロメオ&ジュリエット、13番)」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 6 minutes

Virulent, ghastly, almost vampiric, this ballet is just like the composer’s disfigured century, whence most of us still hail…  Prokofiev throws a brass-heavy Molotov cocktail that punches, flails and whacks, slaps and birches into ultimate submission.

A REFLECTION

Hour of Parting, hour of meeting

They know not – nor grief nor rest

Theirs no longing for the future

Theirs no sorrow for the past

By thy day of anguish broken

Think of them and calm thy woe

Be indifferent as they are

To the pangs of earth below
