Misc. Comments

A one movement cantata dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the October Revolution. It is written for a large symphony and mixed chorus. The text comes from E. Dolmatovsky's poem, titled "Flourish, Our Mighty Land!" Prokofiev initially wrote the piece under the same name, though it was later switched to its current form before the revised edition was published. The piece was first performed in Moscow by the Russian Federal S.S.R. Choir under A. S. Stepanov and the State Symphony Orchestra with N. P. Anosov conducting.
