[Prokofiev]: “The performance is an eloquent one, and Rostropovitch’s playing shows his beautiful tone and masterly technique … a very faithful recording, a true balance of tone between soloist and orchestra” [Saint-Saens]: “The best performance of all, however (and best recording) is that of Rostropovich – more fanciful altogether, and backed up by orchestral playing from the Philharmonia under Sargent that is a genuine contribution to an exciting performance. (Gramophone)
