While it is not at all unusual for a composer to return to a work and make revisions, Sergei Prokofiev’s Fourth Symphony is a unique case. The piece was composed and then revised to the point that the composer saw them as two separate works. The first version, which was composed in 1929, was met with apathetic response by audiences. The 1947 revision completely reworked the material and created a much more ambitious score.
