Signum’s 3rd disc with the St Petersburg Philharmonic orchestra and Yuri Temirkanov presents another great work of the Russian musical tradition. Prokofiev’s ballet scores for Cinderella and Romeo & Juliet remain popular and often performed to this day, with their success at the time of composition leading to Prokofiev’s creation of the orchestral suites performed on this disc.

This recording follows their January 2010 release of Verdi’s Requiem, and April 2010 release of Shostakovich’s Symphony No 7 (Leningrad): "this is a full-blooded performance of Verdi’s late work ... Full Marks for passion" - The Telegraph - January 2010


"Temirkanov is good, noble and intense, gripping our attention with Shostakovich’s sustained lines." - Musicweb-International - June 2010

"...If you fancy dipping your toes into these two seminal 20th-century ballets, do purchase with confidence, as playing and recording are superlative."
