 Outstanding Composer And Excellent Selections. September 2, 2012 By Richard Buckley (Oakmont, PA) See All My Reviews "Prokofiev is one of the most underrated composers of his time. His great talent and virtuosity is second to very few. The selections included on this disc include some of his most relevant and entertaining work. They include suites from Romeo and Juliet, Lieutenant Kiji, Cinderella and a brief piece from The Love for Three Oranges. Each is a masterpiece in its own right. The orchestras and conductors were unknown to me before purchasing this disc, but, like all Naxos selections, they turned out to be outstanding performances. Juliet As a Young Girl, a movement from Romeo and Juliet, has long been a favorite of mine, and here it is handled expertly. The sleigh ride (Troika) from Lieutenant Kiji is also thrillingly presented. All in all, this disc packs some wallop and enjoyment for those fortunate enough to discover and buy it.
