Sergei Prokofiev wrote his Symphony No. 2 in D minor (Op. 40) in Paris in 1924-25, during what he called "nine months of frenzied toil". He characterized this symphony as a work of "iron and steel". Prokofiev modeled the symphony's structure on Ludwig van Beethoven's last piano sonata (Op. 111): a tempestuous minor-key first movement followed by a set of variations. The first movement, in traditional sonata form, is rhythmically unrelenting, harmonically dissonant, and texturally thick.

Serge Prokofiev completed his Classical Symphony in 1917, the most productive year of his creative life, in which he also composed his First Violin Concerto, his Third and Fourth piano sonatas, his Visions fugitives for piano, and began work on his ever-popular Third Piano Concerto. In the early years of his career, Prokofiev seemed to have established a reputation for himself as the new bad-boy of Russian music. It was in the midst of this transitional moment that Prokofiev completed his Classical Symphony, a work he may have been considering as early as 1913, when he first conducted a Haydn symphony. Some conductors import the later, longer version from the ballet to the symphony, while others think the concise original is more in the spirit of the whole work.
The highlights from Romeo and Juliet include some of the best known-music from the ballet, including the frequently excerpted "Montagues and Capulets" (also known as the Dance of the Knights) and "The Child Juliet. The Symphony No. 1 in D major, "Classical," is another popular work, brimming with Haydn -esque humor and Mozartian elegance in a pastiche of Classical ideas blended with sophisticated modern touches
