The past and the contemporary meet on this DSD EP, as Gianandrea Noseda conducts the London Symphony Orchestra performing Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 1. At once something entirely new, yet reaching back to a time gone by.
For his first symphony, Prokofiev, in characteristic style, decided to do the opposite of what was expected of him. The work was composed in 1917, but instead of capturing the turbulence of Revolutionary Russia, Prokofiev kept the work at a distance from political upheaval, making Haydn and Mozart his muses, and writing a work that sparkles with wit, buoyancy and playfulness.
Nick Boston at Bachtrack says “Noseda and the LSO achieved a good balance here between accentuating the wit and edge, whilst maintaining ‘classical’ precision and simplicity, avoiding simplistic pastiche.”
