About

This was the first complete recording of Prokofiev’s Cantata for the 20th anniversary of the October Revolution.  

It is good to have so sharply original and refreshingly dramatic a piece complete on disc at last, an occasional disc that rises far above its first inspiration.  As a valuable fill-up comes a suite of excerpts from the folk-tale ballet of 1948, The Stone Flower.’ - 3 stars, Penguin Guide
