Summary:
"This terrific set derives from the concerts where conductor and orchestra realised they were made for each other. It certainly sounds like true love, with maestro and players equally committed to these colossal works.

Abstract:

"This terrific set derives from the concerts where conductor and orchestra realised they were made for each other. It certainly sounds like true love, with maestro and players equally committed to these colossal works. Throughout there is no doubting, or resisting, the deep wells of emotion plumbed in these performances. Although he is never slow to clench an orchestral fist, Gergiev avoids brutality for its own sake. Instead, he achieves his effects through a super-concentrated lyricism that can build to passages of searing power." (Recording of the Month Gramophone June 2006).

"Valery Gergiev is a born Prokofiev interpreter, and in his series of concerts with the London Symphony Orchestra, playing all seven Prokofiev symphonies, he made the LSO sound like the ideal musicians for this repertoire." The Guardian.
