This budget Apex Prokofiev coupling from Kurt Masur was, I have to confess, completely new to me. It has, presumably, been unearthed from the Teldec archives, and enters a pretty crowded and highly competitive field. If we take the stunning Ala and Lolli music that the 23-year old Prokofiev wrote for Diaghilev’s Ballet Russes first. This is a young composer clearly influenced by the Rite of Spring, and revelling in it. Pounding rhythms, loud dissonances, big orchestral effects and an exotic sound-world show the young firebrand very much at home in his barbaric subject matter. Masur’s Leipzig orchestra acquit themselves well, though to turn to Abbado and the Chicago SO is to hear a different level of music-making.

Alexander Nevsky (Russian: Александр Невский) is the score composed by Sergei Prokofiev for Sergei Eisenstein's 1938 film Alexander Nevsky.
