Product Description

CD82531 Prokofiev - Ivan the Terrible from the Salzburg Festiva

Broadcast live by OE1 this morning (Sunday 15 August 2010) from GroŖen Festspielhaus, Salzburg, comes this Salzburg Festival performance of an oratorio put together by Alexander Stasevich (OEI gives his first name as Abram) in 1961 based on Prokofiev's music and Eisentein's text for the film 'Ivan the Terrible'.

Sung texts are by Vladimir Lugovski.

I have to admit my heart sank when the two actors doing the spoken parts turned out not to be Russian but French and German respectively.

Hearing the first syllables from their lips put me off I'm afraid, so I haven't heard the performance at yet.
