Notes and Editorial Reviews

There are few recordings of the music for the film Ivan the Terrible, making this CD a valuable addition to the catalogue. Prokofiev never reworked his music for Ivan the Terrible and while various attempts have been made to create a concert work from the music, the present recording includes the complete score Prokofiev composed for the film. Recorded in: Grand Hall of Moscow Conservatory 10-14 January 2003 Producer(s) Valeri Polyansky Sound Engineer(s) Igor Veprintsev There are few recordings of the music for the film Ivan the Terrible, making this CD a valuable addition to the catalogue.
