The premiere of Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony was the pinnacle of his career. Composed in the final days of World War II, this wildly successful work is marked by the optimism of impending victory. While Prokofiev’s Symphony is firmly rooted in a Russian style, Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence is inspired by his infatuation with the sights and sounds of Italy. This work, originally scored for string sextet, will be performed in an expanded version for the full strings of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
