Often mentioned when discussing Le Sacre, that fact has never compelled me to pay much attention to Prokofiev's Scythian Suite. In my random listenings, I yesterday heard a bit of it by Littton/Bergen and while it sounded well-played, it didn't have much malice or danger to it. If I recall MTT talking about his BSO Sacre as an attempt at a buoyant party, Litton's track sounded very much the same.
Is there a Scythian Suite that you favor, malicious or not?
