Possibly, just possibly a new survey of the great man's major works? A great favourite of mine but still in the shadow of his nemesis Shostakovitch. Maybe Nevsky next?

It would be wonderful wouldn't it? I have to say that the symphonies, with Gergiev at the helm at least, would be precluded thanks to the relatively recent set issued by Universal on the Philips label. I'd love a Cinderella!

Before that happens, there's a Rachmaninov symphonies set to come, and guessing, possibly some Stravinsky, Ravel and Messiaen.

And three discs of Nielsen, of course.

Ashkenazy would be a good candidate for Nevsky. Some years ago I went to a screening of Eisenstein's film in London, at which Ashkenazy and the Philharmonia played the score. It was a terrific concert.

As for Cinderella, his version with the Cleveland Orchestra is a long-time favourite of mine.

Tuesday 11th March 2003 at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

A very memorable concert indeed.

Ciarain.

Gosh, the one I went to was in the late 1980s/early 90s (also at the RFH). They showed von Stroheim's Greed about the same time, with Carl Davis conducting his own score.

You didn't know that Prokofiev also composed music for the ballet Cinderella?

Which raises the question Peter, whether any of us will live long enough... Hopefully an odd anniversary will intervene?

Bissie suggested that more than two or three releases a year can confuse the buying public as to what is newly released and what is not, so the full impact of the initial sales push cab be blunted. LSO Live probably follow a similar model.

The Pletnev 'Cinders' is going to take some beating that's for sure.
