NOTES

This is an orchestration of one of my favorite piano works, Sergei Prokofiev’s “Suggestion Diabolique” from his Four Pieces, op.4. In it, I try to amplify the drama and ferocity of the piece using the power and timbral resources of the orchestra. It was my final project for a class taken with Michael Gandolfi at Harvard.
