영어로 만나는 프로코피예프의
The Prokofiev Cinderella, begun in 1940 and finished in '44, followed his splendid Romeo and Juliet score and there are some obvious similarities. Written for the Kirov as a full-length Ballet, Prokoviev later wrote three orchestral Suites from the material - reworked and changed for their new symphonic format. In the form used on this disc the material is drawn from all three Suites.

Sergei Prokofiev was a Russian Soviet composer, pianist and conductor. As the creator of acknowledged masterpieces across numerous music genres, he is regarded as one of the major composers of the 20th century. His works include such widely heard pieces as the March from The Love for Three Oranges, the suite Lieutenant Kijé, the ballet Romeo and Juliet—from which "Dance of the Knights" is taken—and Peter and the Wolf. Of the established forms and genres in which he worked, he created – excluding juvenilia – seven completed operas, seven symphonies, eight ballets, five piano concertos, two violin concertos, a cello concerto, a symphony-concerto for cello and orchestra, and nine completed piano sonatas.
