Do you know your Prokofiev?

Which symphony did Prokofiev write twice? Did he really write a piano concerto for just one hand—and if so, which hand? ✋ Take our quiz to find out!

This weekend will be our last from this summer’s edition of the Verbier Festival and the festival has pulled out all the stops with two all-Prokofiev programs featuring a nearly-complete cycle of the composer’s piano concertos, his Classical-infused first symphony, and a symphonic suite based on music from his opera The Love for Three Oranges.

To help you get into the mood, we’ve pulled together a quick quiz on one of our favorite curmudgeonly composers. Click through below to play and see if you’d have been able to make Prokofiev proud…

Don’t miss the pair of all-Prokofiev programs, live from the Verbier Festival this weekend: Yuja Wang, Daniil Trifonov, and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet perform alongside Gianandrea Noseda and the Verbier Festival orchestra!
