Excellent "Trout" and Notturno! December 4, 2012
By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews
"This disc is a winner in every way! The selections are great. Symphony No. 1 is one of Prkofiev's finest pieces of music. The famous 3rd movement, the Gavotta, is wonderful and performed with outstanding panache by Seiji Ozawa and the Berlin Philharmonic. The ever popular Love for Three Oranges is presented equally masterfully by Charles Dutoit and the Montreal Symphony. The filler, Sni (Dreams) was unfamiliar to me, but it, too, is beautifully performed by Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. The sound is brilliant and perfectly balanced. No matter what other Prokofiev selections you have in your collection, you certainly should rush to buy this great CD while it is still available and an outstanding bargain! Highly recommended."

By M. Gielen (den Bosch, Noord Brabant) See All My Reviews
"This piano quintet is played in a romantic loving style.
Hokanson and the villa musica are giving us a warm, affectionate and eloquent version of this magnificient masterwork.
About the notturno; I was very impressed by the performance of this deep moving music.
This cd is a real bargain.
