Cinderella at the BBC Proms

3 posts in this topic

Did anyone hear last Wednesday's Proms featuring Prokofiev's complete Cinderella performed by the London Symphony Orchestra? I just listened to it on the BBC Proms website. Valery Gergiev's tempo was quite fast at times. There were parts of the score that were played in ways I'd never heard before, and wondered if it was due to the number, and/or balance of the instruments. Overall, a lovely performance that reconfirmed this as one of my favorite ballet scores, and left me longing for my out-of-reach DVDs of the ballet.
