Catalogue Number: 03K063
Description: Since Capriccio dispenses with dates of original publication, all we can tell you is that these discs of incidental music came out sometime during the late 80s and the early 90s, at the time containing much that had not been recorded before. For those of you curious then but who held off because of the presence of Russian narration in some of the scores, this very inexpensive reissue is another chance to hear some very rare Prokofiev. 3 CDs. Budget-price. Marina Domashenko (mezzo), Victor Savalei, Yuri Svatenko (tenors), Boris Statsenko, Marek Kalbus (baritones), Arutiun Kochinian (bass), Khulpan Khamatova, Jakob Küf (speakers), RIAS Chamber Choir, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchsestra; Michael Jurowski.
