In 1936, Sergei Prokofiev (April 1891 – 5 March 1953) was commissioned by Natalya Sats and the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow, Russia to write a new musical symphony for children. The intent was to cultivate "musical tastes in children from the first years of school".  Intrigued by the invitation, Prokofiev completed Peter and the Wolf in just four days.
