Sergei Prokofiev: The Enemy God and the Dance of the Spirits: Concert Band

Score & Parts | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Instrumentation Concert Band/Harmonie
Composer Sergei Prokofiev
Publisher De Haske Publications
The Russian ballet director Sergei Diaghilev commissioned many composers to write music for the theatre. This was what caused Serge Prokofiev to compose the four part Scytische Suite (also known as Ala and Lolli) in 1916, from which The Enemy God and the Dance of the Spirits can be heard on this CD. This suite is one of Prokofiev's first works, and received negative criticism following its first performance on account of its being "uncivilised". Prokofiev himself wrote after this first performance ". . . The timpani player beat the skin of the timpani to tatters, and the whole orchestra voiced a protest. A cellist complained that he only put up with the violence, created by the blaring brass, on account of his sick wife and three children . . .".
