Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Neeme Jarvi are joined here by the bass Nikita Storojev and the contralto Linda Finnie on this re-issue of the music to the classic film 'Ivan the Terrible', as arranged for concert performance by Christopher Palmer.
BBC Music Magazine
Prokofiev's score for Eisenstein's epic film, in the oratorio arrangement by Christopher Palmer, receives an expansively powerful reading from Järvi, his Philharmonia forces, and excellent soloists.
