 Still the Best! December 9, 2013 By Alan W. (Madison, WI) See All My Reviews "Malko's recording of the Prokofiev First is still the best. I first heard it in the late 50s and none has been better since. Of course that's my opinion but just listen and be amazed. The Seventh is right there near the top of recordings currently available. It was my first hearing from Malko for the rest of the numbers and became a freshing, enjoyable experience all clearly recommended." Report Abuse
