This was the first complete recording of Prokofiev’s Cantata for the 20th anniversary of the October Revolution, and is now released on Chandos Classics.

It is good to have so sharply original and refreshingly dramatic a piece complete on disc at last, and occasional disc that rises far above its first inspiration. As a valuable fill-up comes a suite of excerpts from the folk-tale ballet of 1948, The Stone Flower. .
3 stars, Penguin Guide

“…with the Philharmonia Chorus and Orchestra on top form under the inspired leadership of Jarvi. The central movement, ‘Revolution’, is particularly effective in its use of the chorus (singing and speaking in admirable Russian) and an extended percussion ensemble. The fill-up is a valuable suite of excerpts from a folk-tale ballet of 1948…”
