This and the other two 2CD sets represent all of Ansermet’s Prokofiev recordings for Decca (with the exception of a mono recording of the March and Scherzo from ‘The Love for Three Oranges’ – the stereo version appears here). Both, the Paris Conservatoire and the Suisse Romande versions of the ‘Classical’ Symphony are included and Ruggiero Ricci and Julius Katchen are sterling soloists in the concertos. This is Katchen’s first of two Decca recordings of the Prokofiev Third.
