Notes & Reviews:

"Polyansky's reading is demonic, restless, angry and utterly gripping. His percussionists pound away mercilessly. His brasses hector and frighten us. He slashes and stuns. He doesn't interpret; he invades the music with full force and brutality of the Red Army. Tempos are slow but never ponderous. Here's hoping that he'll give us a complete cycle of Prokofiev's symphonies and concertos in the very near future." - Godell, ARG
