Notes and Editorial Reviews

Russian-born conductor Leonid Grin conducts a fine Finnish orchestra in some of the most charming music that Prokofiev wrote. ... I am content, as I imagine most listeners will be, with this Ondine recording, with its zestful conducting and lovely playing by an orchestra of which I was previously unaware.
