Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Prokofiev suite, strikingly intense, finds Kempe at home in a sharply charcaterized performance full of grotesquerie. With well-defined contrasts of light and shade, bite and tenderness, it becomes more than a sequence of genre pieces. Vivid transfer of the 1975 radio recording, with high dynamnic contrasts." - PENGUIN GUIDE "The Prokofiev suite, strikingly intense, finds Kempe at home in a sharply charcaterized performance full of grotesquerie.
