Renae Z.
Reviewed on 12/31/2006...
In 1938, Prokofiev was approached by Russia's leading film director, Sergei Eisenstein, who proposed a collaboration on the Alexander Nevsky tale. Prokofiev leaped at the chance of working again in a medium he admired. He had already composed the scores for "Lieutenant Kije" and "The Queen of Spades". The resultant film is conceivably the greatest ever devised adn certainly has no equal in the business of partnership between a director and composer.

"I think the excellence of Reiner and Chicago is generally known to most of those who listen to classical music. This CD is no exception. The sound is fairly clear, especially for a recording originally made in the late 1950s. Any fan of Prokofiev's film music will appreciate this disc!"
