Weekend Holiday Song

It's now winter, the holidays are upon us, and the music is full of references to sleighs and snow. This is one of my favorites, an evocative piece by Prokofiev about a ride in a three-horse sleigh ("troika").

I love your eclectic taste in music! What a wonderful way to usher in Christmas Eve. Spasibo! P.E.C.

This has always been a favorite short piece of mine - exhilarating and quintessentially Russian. Glad you liked it!
