Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Prokofiev's love for the classical era is obvious
from the title given to his first symphony: the Classical Symphony. He
commented that he wanted to write a symphony as Joseph Haydn would have written,
had he been born in the 20th century. Prokofiev's famous Toccata Op.
11 is a neoclassical tour de force. Based on a simple minor triad, he
builds this short piece to a great climax with its ostinato, non-stop
motion. When it seems that the machine is losing energy, at the very end, there
is still time for a last burst of energy.
