Excellent Prokofiev Symphony Recordings
Prokofiev: The Complete Symphonies With this box set you get the 7 symphonies of Prokofiev, but it includes the original and revised versions of the 4th Symphony. Prokofiev: The Complete Symphonies Although I love the music of S.P. I have never heard a recording of the 1st Symphony (The Classical) that i didn't think was trite. Prokofiev: The Complete Symphonies But Gergiev has come up with the exact tempi to make this work for me. Prokofiev: The Complete Symphonies Particularly, the 3rd movement marked Gavotta:Non troppo allegro simply scampers along! It's like watching a child happily skipping down the street and it is delightful. Prokofiev: The Complete Symphonies The revised version of the 4th Symphony is tuneful and really ravishing, much to my surprise. Symphonies 3, 5 and 6 are given fairly even recordings, not too dissimilar to others I know. The 7th Symphony has details brought out and explored that make it even more sensuous than usual and very pleasant to hear. Symphony 2 was Prokofiev's attempt to show the establishment that the Classical Symphony was nice, but that he WAS capable of composing really aggressive and dissonant music... and he succeeded. Not too much to say of No.2! This is a wonderful traversal of the Symphonies and can easily be recommended to lovers of symphonic music and Russian symphonic music particularly.
