the music

Born in Kokand, one of the oldest cities in Uzbekistan, the Soviet composer Suleiman Yudakov was a student of Reinhold Glière at the Moscow Conservatory, who also taught Prokofiev. He wrote the first Uzbek comic opera, ballets, patriotic cantatas and symphonic music. The Khorezm Festival Procession, with its strong orientalist flavour, evokes the music of pre-Islamic Central Asian festivals.

The last work completed by Sergei Prokofiev, Symphony No. 7 is not a final testament; on the contrary, it is fresh and cheerful, with a melodious and easy lyricism. Written so that it could be played by youth orchestras, it is a true ode to youth of all countries and all times.
