Hello readers. By reading the title, you probably know what this is going to be about. Since April, I have used The Scattered Life as a tool to express myself in a way I never thought possible. However, for a while now, I feel as though this blog has not been as successful as possible. …

This symphony of Prokofiev’s is not very well-known; it is one of his least performed pieces, which is a shame in my opinion. The first few minutes feel very somber and haunting, but the symphony progressively gets harsher in tone. This is why Prokofiev’s second symphony is also called the “Iron and Steel” symphony.

It’s depressing, but chilling to the bone. Absolutely lovely.
