  Train Ride from Winter Holiday (1950) Sergei Prokofiev (trans. Howard Cable) Serge Prokofiev composed Train Ride as part of his larger opus, Winter Holiday. Perfectly set for the holiday season, in this short vignette one can easily hear the sounds of the train chugging and steaming from a dead start to a brisk speed and a final slowdown and standstill. The train passes through towns and villages bedecked for the holiday season, presented with typical Prokofievian melodic chromaticism.
