Attention Prokofiev fans! A new 2-disc recording of his IVAN THE TERRIBLE score, conducted by Frank Strobel, will be released in early 2018 by Capriccio, according to what I've heard. Although not referenced in this link, it must have derived from this project with the European FilmPhilharmonic Institute: http://www.frankstrobel.de/en/projekte/ivan-the-terrible.html




Strobel's NEVSKY, METROPOLIS, and Schnittke film music recordings are all essential, in my opinion.

I'm assuming given the 2CDs it'll also have the traditional choral music like the Nimbus does....

Very exciting news. I've been on the fence about buying the Fedoseyev recording for some time, but now I think I'll wait for this new recording. In the meantime, I've have the Gergiev recording of the oratorio to tide me over.

Looking at that tracklist, it looks as though it's arranging the music as it appears in the films, with the music depicting Ivan's childhood appearing midway through Part 2 as it did in the films rather than near the beginning of Part 1 as Eisenstein originally intended (on that note, the March of the Young Ivan and The Sea cues seem to be conspicuously absent from this recording).

Edit: Upon sampling some of the clips on ITunes, it turns out that the piece that on previous recordings was labeled “The Sea” is on this album as the Disc I “Prologue.”

Just a heads-up that this is currently on sale via Presto Classical -- part of a wider sale on Capriccio titles that runs through late March. Even after shipping to the US, it comes in at under $20.

Any chance retail outlets like Amoeba will carry this?

Can't say I enjoyed Strobel's admittedly technically fine Alexander Nevsky so I'll probably pass here even though it won't be trying to recreate what amounted to be a glorified scratch track like that other venture.

I hate to say it but the clips for this recording are not impressing me. The sound seems sort of muddy. Granted, they're only clips, but I'm not inclined to buy if I suspect I may be disappointed and the Fedoseyev version is very satisfying.

Odd, because all the other Strobel recordings I have sound great.
