Notes & Reviews:
Recorded in Moscow in 1998, this is the first complete recording of Prokfiev's music for Sergei Eisenstein's film "Ivan the Terrible," composed between 1942 and 1945. Until now the music has only ever been heard in the 1962 oratorio arrangement by Abram Stasevich, which has left an imcomplete and inaccurate impression of Prokofiev's plans. The Russian soloists and chorus are in complete command of the language of the liturgical texts and give the performance an authentic atmosphere.
