Probably the best sound you'll ever have for a movieIvan The Terrible broke new ground on its release in 1944 – not only because of its epic and highly affecting content, but also because of its rousing score by Sergey Prokofiev. Even Stalin felt so overwhelmed that he banned the second part from public screening. Tonight, Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra through his arrangement of the score, alongside selected extracts from the movie.
- Prokofiev: Scythian Suite (Ala i Lolli)
