Sibelius's Fifth Symphony dates from 1915 and was the product of a commission from the Finnish Government to mark the composer's fiftieth birthday. That possibly accounts for its popular appeal and avoidance of the enigmatic terseness characteristic of his Fourth Symphony. Nevertheless, though it is more readily assimilable by the ordinary listener, it is a powerful and vigorous work displaying the composer's genius to the full.

Serge Prokofiev is considered one of the leading contemporary composers of Russia, and in his numerous works, such as the opera, The Love for Three Oranges, he has shown himself to be a master technician and a composer of great individuality. His Classical Symphony, however, is not really representative of his style. It was composed as a jeu d'esprit which, both in form and in idiom, harks back to the time of Haydn and Mozart.
