Andrzej Panufnik
Sergey Prokofiev
Piano Concerto No. 5 in G major, Op. 55
Dmitry Shostakovich
Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47

In 1936, after almost twenty years spent in the West, Prokofiev decided to return to the USSR for good. The exuberant Fifth Piano Concerto, the five movements of which he treated initially more like ‘music for piano and orchestra’ than as a strictly concert form, proved to be one of the last works he wrote abroad. That same year, Joseph Stalin launched a campaign against Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District. Following a performance of the opera, an article appeared in Pravda robustly criticising Shostakovich, and the witch-hunt against the composer began. The first performance of his Fourth Symphony was cancelled, but in response to the ‘just criticism’, he wrote the Fifth. At the end of the following decade, Panufnik was seeking cracks in the binding socialist realist current for his own compositional work. The resulting works included the Old Polish Suite, inspired by old dances. The cracks, however, soon began to close up, and the composer emigrated to the West that Prokofiev had left behind.
