About

First complete new recording of the reconstructed original score

Ivan the Terrible, the second joint project between Sergey Eisenstein and Sergey Prokofiev, is a historical spectacular similar to Alexander Nevsky, portraying the rise and fall of the autocratic ruler Ivan IV in the 16th century. Sergey Prokofievís musical portrayal is unique in the history of film music; the score was conceived on a epic scale for both parts of the film. Prokofievís rich melodic invention takes its inspiration from the expressive sound palette of his native Russia, not least the spiritual works of the Russian Orthodox liturgy.
