Love of Three Oranges

Listening to Prokofiev today. The first time I heard him, I was about fourteen. I heard bits and pieces of his version of Romeo and Juliet, but the one that took my breath away was this piece, "Dance of the Knights."

It's a very melodramatic piece, which is what I like about it. I can see more than just knights dancing to this.

I'm not actually that familiar with Prokofiev, but today I went in search of his other stuff. I love interesting titles, so I tried this "Love for Three Oranges" because it sounded sort of wild. I'm not sure if I like this piece. It's not bad, but it would be hard to beat "Dance of the Knights."
