Repertoire Note



Prokofieff is rightly regarded as one of the greatest of all composers for children. Those who knew him say that in some ways he himself remained a child all his life. In 1935, while working on Romeo and Juliet, he produced a series of easy-to-play piano pieces called Music for Children, which quickly became popular with young pianists everywhere. A few years later he orchestrated some of these miniatures to make this charmingly entertaining suite, like a brief series of orchestral postcards.
