Background

Prokofiev didn’t just enjoy wit. He also loved satire, and nowhere is that more evident than in his sardonic opera, “Love for Three Oranges.” The march from that opera is one of his most recognizable tunes. It has appeared in commercials, films, and television programs. Classical radio hosts use it for theme music. The grotesque march mocks the pomp and ceremony of the military with deft, dark humor.
