from Lt. Kije

Arranged by James Christensen

Grade 3

Woodwind Quintet



While living in Paris in 1933, Sergei Prokofiev wrote the score for Lt. Kije, a film that was never made. A year later he crafted an orchestral suite from the same material, and it is from that second work that this familiar Christmas season theme originates. This beautiful scoring makes it easy to imagine the bone-chilling Russian winters of Prokofiev’s youth.

Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, French Horn and Bassoon with opt. Sleigh Bells
