It has been said that the Fifth Symphony embodies the highest achievements of Prokofiev the orchestrator, uniting an intoxicating many-colored palette with a clean discipline of orchestral development. Nowhere in recorded form have these orchestral colors been captured with such startling fidelity, in large part due to the efforts of Everest as a pioneer in the art of 35mm magnetic tape recording under the supervision of Bert Whyte. These Prokofiev Fifth sessions were recorded in 1959 at Walthamstow Town Assembly Hall, London with Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting the London Symphony and directly onto three channels of 35mm magnetic tape. The original three track 35mm master tapes were used for this HDAD release.
