I discovered this music when I was in college, more than 50 years ago. It remains my favorite symphony of the 20th Century, though the style is to play it too fast today, "because they can".

Below, it's cued to the 4th movement. Listen for flute and clarinet solos. Laugh at the goofiness of the last two minutes.

Sergei Prokofiev was born Apr 27, 1891.

This was composed in 1944 during Russia's horrific defense of the Nazis, when tens of millions of Russian lives were lost. It was just a few months since the seige of Leningrad. Yet the music is playful, optimistic, lyrical.
