Reissued Decca SXL from Speakers Corner. Prokofiev's miniature, the "Classical Symphony," combines several superlatives as regards both its musical notes and form: It is only 15 minutes long, contains a wealth of melodic ideas, and is the most performed of all Prokofiev's symphonies. This four-movement composition employs traditional forms such as the sonata form in the outer movements and the pre-Classical dances menuet and gavotte. The work's carefree esprit, serenade-like humor, and courtly elegance is delightful throughout and culminates in a high-spirited sturm und drang finale.
