Prokofiev's game is impressive – convincing and, oddly enough, melodic.
Gedike’s Third Symphony, conducted by Boris Haikin, All-Union Radio Symphony Orchestra. Mosoblsovnarchoz RSFSR GOST-1956, a sample of large-scale full sound of the 1950s. Piano is legible, tutti is expressive — strings and brass do not go into a scream, trombones remain “in the body”. The magic cantilena characteristic of the early 1950s TU-1kl records is already absent.
