Prokofiev: The Stone Flower / Gianandrea Noseda, B.B.C. PO

Album Summary

>Prokofiev, Sergei : Tale of the Stone Flower, Op. 118
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"While the conductor (Noseda) doesn't disguise the fact that the score's perky and unusual orchestration is sometimes more interesting than its melodic substance, much of it recycled from other compositions, his players make thrilling use of the colouristic opportunities it affords. Everything is exceptionally well-shaped and controlled, with wind soloists in particular given ample opportunity to shine." - David Gutman, Gramophone
