The score and parts for "Lieutenant Kije" Symphonic Suite Op.60 by Sergei Prokofiev can be purchased from Edition Zeza or at SheetMusicX . The Suite is divided in 5 movements:

  1. Kijé's Birth: A soldier, while writing out the morning orders for the Imperial majesty Tsar Paul, miscopies two words, creating a Lieutenant "Kijé". The Tsar learns of his "existence", and issues numerous orders concerning him. The palace administrators have no choice but to carry them out.
  2. Romance. The fictional lieutenant falls in love.
  3. Kijé's Wedding. Since the Tsar prefers his heroic soldiers to be married, the administrators concoct a fake wedding.
  4. Troika.
  5. Kijé's Burial. The administrators finally rid themselves of the non-existent lieutenant by saying he has died.

Did Guillame de Machaut only write sacred music?

No he was actually a leader in the new art at the time called "Ars Nova." While yes he is very well known for his sacred music he wrote many poems about a woman that he loved very much and she loved him, but sadly she was to young for him and it was unable to work out. He wrote many poems and set them to music and they were about this love that he had. one in particular that is worth mentioning is Puis Qu'en Oublis. It means, Since I Am Forgotten by You. It is a sad song but worth listening to especially because of its harmony and dissonance, which is unheard of in the times he was writing this in the mid 1300's.

Who wrote the firework symphony?

To my knowledge, no symphony is referred to as the "Fireworks" symphony. You may be thinking of the "Royal Fireworks Music", a suite, not a symphony, which was written by Handel, or (a long shot) a short orchestral piece by Stravinsky called "Fireworks".
