LIEUTENANT KIJE SCORE PDF

Perhaps less often recognized, it was one of the most forward-looking scores of the decade. Furthermore, for much of the s, he had cultivated a dissonant style with such modernist works as the Second Symphony and the Quintet, and Prokofiev was seen in some quarters as politically suspect. But by then, Prokofiev was seriously reconsidering his style. Homesickness and the shock of having his ballet rejected no doubt played their part, as did his faith in Christian Science which caused his revulsion against such earlier expressionistic works as his opera The Fiery Angel , and a genuine desire to reach a wider audience. Then, in , the RAPM was suddenly abolished by a Central Committee Resolution; this also stipulated that musical works should be expressed in a readily understood language addressed to the people at large.

Prokofiev also was attracted by its satirical story, which Tinyanov, a Soviet historical novelist, adapted for the screen. Prokofiev confessed he spent longer creating the suite than he had composing the film music, since he had to make substantial movements out of the original succinct cues.

The suite, composed in , roughly follows the dramatic outline of the film:. Then, accompanied by a side drum, a piccolo pipes a march, twice over. Each episode opens with a pompous brass and woodwind choir, answered by a free ranging cornet solo. Troika: This famous number describes a swift, three-horse sleigh ride with bells.
