 Prokofiev Cello Sonata November 24, 2011 By Richard Alexander (Seattle, WA) See All My Reviews "Marvelous performances of both the Prokofiev and the Shoshtakovich: rich and warm sound; full bodied performances. Both works are played on the soft, contemplative side, which make these renditions quite distinct from many of the driven, sharply accented, edgy performances out there. For the essential beauty of these works, Edlina and Turovsky cannot be surpassed." Report Abuse
