Fun Facts

  • A child prodigy, Prokofiev composed his first piano piece when he was 5 and his first opera at age 9. His friend and fellow composer Igor Stravinsky described Prokofiev as the greatest Russian composer of his day. (After himself, of course.)
  • The winner of multiple Grammys, a Grand Prix du Disque, Diapason d’Or and Gramophone Editor’s Choice award, Shaham plays the 1699 “Countess Polignac” Stradivarius.

Fun Facts

  • Leonard Bernstein viewed the Seventh as a comment on the breakdown of bourgeois society, praising it as “ironic and exciting and ultimately heartbreaking.”
  • In the third movement, the composer gives the cellos and double basses a dynamic marking of fffff, instructing them to ‘pluck the string so hard that it hits the wood’.
