Notes & Reviews:

On the original release of these recordings, 'Classic CD' wrote, "this CD is welcome as an introduction, not only to 'The Gambler' but to the even rarer 'Semyon Kotko'". The music is striking in its abundant lyricism. The Four Portraits are a substantial reworking of music from Prokofiev's 'The Gambler', enshrining the best of the opera in its exhilarating and inventive music. Neither suite is widely known yet is notable for its memorable melodies and rich orchestration. The disc is now available at mid-price.
