Sergei Prokofiev - Alexander Nevsky

Prokofiev (1891-1953) was a Russian composer, who is justly famous for his ballets, symphonies, concertos, and sonatas. I have selected a personal favourite from his repertoire, Alexander Nevsky, a cantata for mezzo-soprano, chorus and orchestra, Op. 78, from 1938. Relevant links below.
