Prokofiev's Sinfonia Concertante in E minor (also called Symphony-Concerto) is a large-scale work for cello and orchestra (premiered 1952), a revised version of his earlier Cello Concerto, written in 1933–8.

According to renowned cellist Rostropovich, who premiered the work, “Shostakovich thought that the Sinfonia Concertante was Prokofiev's most brilliant work.”
