Ivan the Terrible the second joint project of Sergei Eisenstein and Sergei Prokofiev is, much like Alexander Newski, a historical epic, portraying the rise and fall of the autocratic ruler Ivan IV in the 16th century. Sergei Prokofievs musical portrayal is unique in film history, for the score conceives both parts of the film on an epic scale. Prokofievs rich melodic invention thrives on the expressive sound palette of his native Russia, mostly as they echo the spiritual works of the Russian-orthodox liturgy.

A Russian composer whose modernity seems to be inherent in him rather than something artificial or over-intellectualized. His natural feeling for melody and rhythm – by turns humorous (Peter and the Wolf), lyrical (Concerto for Piano & Orchestra no. 3), elegiac (Visions fugitives), aggressive (Scythian Suite), or all of the above (Lieutenant Kije Suite) – is wedded to a desire for direct communication with the listener and a quality of continually interesting invention.

The achingly beautiful, haunting lyricism of early Rachmaninov and the soaring effusiveness of late Prokofiev are glowingly brought to life by the German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser and the Russian pianist Andrei Korobeinikov in this new release from PENTATONE of richly expressive 20th century cello sonatas and other works.

Most of the pieces on this CD was written before Prokofiev became vexed by ideological discussions, and they reflect his quest among different cultures. With the exception of the solo sonata, they were composed in the West. Only after he settled in Moscow in 1936 did he experience the tragic fate of the great composers and writers under the Stalinist system, revered one day and maligned the next.Rosanne:There is something special about Prokofiev's music.You realise that each and every note is painstakingly put into place, which could appear to be almost distanced and mathematical, but nothing could be further from the truth, for his music touches the soul. The perfect balance between wonderful melodies and catching rhythmic passages is also something I find really fascinating.

The prize here is the Rachmaninoff cello sonata, a warm, hyper-Romantic musical tapestry that gives both the pianist and cellist a major workout. Ma is a superb chamber-music player, as is Ax. Both offer the kind of artistic give-and-take that a great performance of this music requires, while neither weighs the music down with excessive indulgence. The Prokofiev, a very different sort of musical beast, is a much lighter work, but it's done no less well. This is one of Ma's best chamber-music discs.

The nearly uninterrupted string of strong, successful albums produced by cellist Gautier Capuçon (and indeed his violinist brother, Renaud) demonstrates that the CD debut Face à Face was not just a fluke produced by child prodigies. Rather, Face à Face was a springboard for what has proven to be an enduring career and ever-improving musicianship. On this latest album without his brother, Gautier collaborates with pianist Gabriela Montero on the cello sonatas of Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. Fans of Capuçon's playing will recall that he had previously released a recording of the Rachmaninov sonata with pianist Lilya Zilberstein on the EMI label in 2003. While it may seem questionable to make duplicate recordings when he has recorded so little of the cello repertoire, it offers listeners an opportunity to see how his playing continues to mature even over a short span of five years. While some of the tempos are a little different than the 2003 recording, the most notable difference is that of sound, which has developed impressively with the help of his magnificent 1701 Gofriller cello. His command of sound is most obvious in the solo opening of the Prokofiev sonata.

Nathan Milstein once described Sergei Prokofiev’s first violin concerto as: ‘indeed one of the best modern violin concertos… a brilliant piece, perhaps the finest of all Prokofiev’s works’, while the second concerto was taken up by violinists such as David Oistrakh and Jascha Heifetz.
