Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legacy of Sergei Prokofiev (1891 - 1953) is by now well explored and universally acknowledged. His music is performed all over the world. It is hard to imagine our musical life without his works, which have become indispensable ‘standards’ on our concert menu. In addition to his outstanding abilities as a composer, Prokofiev had an incredible melodic gift – a rarity for a twentieth-century composer (Rachmaninoff excepted). It is this lyrical and intimate aspect of his music that is explored in this recording, which has been put together in the manner of an installation of stained glass and attempts to produce a portrait of the composer, when listened to straight through. All the works collected in this album are short, ranging from Read more under one minute to five minutes in length. Read less
