Very Fine Prokofiev Symphony #5
I would have to guess that Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony is his second favorite to our ears, with the First ("Classical Symphony") coming in first, and the Seventh coming in third (here he used every wonderful theme that made everything else he wrote "wonderful" to create a great amalgam). This recording of the 5th Symphony is simply top-notch in every way. It is very spirited; the recording technique is excellent; Rattle's interpretation is among the best; and of course the music itself cannot be bettered! Add to this a version of the Scythian Suite which is longer than most, and to my ears comes closest to making this into first-class music. It was written by a young Prokofiev of 24 years, and was his idea of music to depict the Scythians much as Stravinsky depicted ancient Russian rites in The Rite Of Spring. Not Prokofiev's best, but certainly wanting to be heard to it's best by any Prokofiev lover...and here it is at it's best! A great recording, and just look at the CDUniverse price!! How can you lose??? You owe it to yourself to hear this recording, so buy it!
