Review by nabokov June 27, 2003 (5 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
An interesting collection of unknown Prokofiev. Ashkenazy paces the music very well, however, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic seems surprisingly uninvolved. More commitment would certainly have made up for the rather dry, upfront recording. Multi-channel does add some excitement to the Cantata ‘Seven, They are Seven’ but no genuine emotion, alas.
