Lina Prokofiev (narrator)
Scottish National Orchestra
Neeme Järvi, conductor
No Prokofiev recorded anthology would be complete without a performance of Peter and the Wolf, and here the narrator comes in the person of Lina Prokofiev, the composer’s widow. Recorded for Chandos when she was nearly ninety.
The disc is completed with a number of shorter pieces, all associated with poetical works by Alexander Pushkin.
