Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Amsterdam, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Kiril Kondrashin – The Kondrashin Recordings, Prokofiev - Symphony No. 3, Shostakovich - Symphony No. 9. Label: Philips Classics – Philips 438 284-2.
The disc includes Dmitri Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony, a composer with whom Maestro Kondrashin worked closely with in the 1960’s. The performance is filled with the sort of wit and humor one associates with the Ninth. The Concertgebouw play the music lovingly. Both are live recordings (from 1975 and 1980) and have no audience noise except for applause at the conclusion. The recordings are clear and well-balanced. This year marks the centennial of the birth of Kirill Kondrashin (March 6) and hopefully there will be many reissues of his recordings to mark the occasion.
Sergei Prokofiev wrote his Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 44 in 1928. The music derives from Prokofiev's opera The Fiery Angel, a touching love story set against the backdrop of demonic possession. This opera had been accepted for performance in the 1927-28 season at the Berlin State Opera by Bruno Walter, but this production never materialised; in fact, the opera was never staged in Prokofiev's lifetime.
