Prokofiev: The Love for Three Oranges / Hickox, et al

Album Summary

>Prokofiev, Sergei : Love for three oranges
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...[this] Australian performance itself is in every way competitive with current rivals... Hickox and his Australians have a ball throughout, and the recording somehow captures all the sparkiness of live performance without the usual excessive dryness of an opera house acoustic. Crucially, the chorus and orchestra sound as fully engaged as the soloists themselves... In a sense the serious collector has to have Gergiev for the original Russian text... but for the most instant enjoyment, the new issue will surely score highest for native English speakers." -Gramophone
