PROKOFIEV Peter und der Wolf Abbado DVDV 0734267
. . . Abbado's soundtrack is superb.
. . . colors are saturated, the sound is fine, and performances are all good. That includes Sting's narration . . . and that of his counterpart Roberto Benigni in the parallel Italian-language version. Abbado should have recorded tons more Prokofiev than he has. It's great to hear the March so sprightly, sad to think of the other Prokofiev marches Abbado could have given us.
