Sergei Prokofiev-16-This is the last composer we will study this year



      







Sergei Prokofiev is one of the most well-known composers of the 20th century.
He was born in Ukraine when it was a part of the Russian Empire in 1891.
From the day he was born, he listened to his mother play the piano, and at age five he composed his first Sonata.
By age nine he wrote his first large-scale composition, an Opera called "The Giant".
He wrote his first symphony at the age of eleven. He went on to compose "Peter and The Wolf",
and the ballet "Romeo and Juliet".
By the end of his life, he had written seven symphonies, seven operas, five piano concertos,
and numerous other works. His music is wildly popular around the world. Try to listen to a bit of each example.
Mr. Montague plays one of his Sonatas!

  1. Symphony 5 in B flat major sounds like Jurassic park and the plague of aliens. Romeo and Juliet sounds like someones behind you and it sounds powerful and exciting. Peter and the Wolf sounds buggy and old fashioned like from the 5th century not the 20th one. From Ari
