I can't find reference to any Prokofiev symphonies by either Petrenko.
Were you thinking of Kitayenko?
I got confused with the Petrenko/Shostakovich (Naxox) set...
I wish Kirill recorded more.
Yes. I suppose he doesn't like to?
No idea.Â No market?
Well, in the mail today came an invitation (with a free 7-day ticket as
teaser teaser) to subscribe to the BPO's Digital Concert Hall. Maybe that's
the future. Certainly some yummy upcoming concerts, plus a storehouse of
concerts from previous years.
I started a monthly subscription after an earlier month-long free
offer. Lots of good stuff in the archives.
I checked yesterday if any KP Prokofiev was in the BO archives: just
a piano concerto (one with Yuja Wang, plus I think one upcoming).
I checked for Prokofiev with other conductors - all the symphonies I
found (other than "Classical"s) were a #5 with Nezet-Seguin, a #6 with
Gergiev, and a #12 with Dima Slobodeniouk (who?). I moght check
our the Gergiev (with some advance suspicion, however). Not a
But I highly recommend a KP program with Stravinsky's Symphony in
Three Movements and Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances, among a few I've
heard. One attractive program I've not heard has Lars Vogt in
LvB's PC #3 and Elgar's Symphony #2 (not that I'm much of an Elgar
fan, but I'll listen). Of course a Russian conductor would play
Elgar but not Prokofiev. :)
