Would you buy this for a child?



  • M McAlpine says:

    No but I didn’t think Prokofiev wrote it for children

  • msc says:

    No doubt it is more about the musician’s image. But given the prominence of “Cinderella” it is amusing. I guess the prince had to start looking somewhere.

  • Bruce says:

    For a child, I would show them the Frederick Ashton version so they understand the humor behind the spiky music. Then I might get them a recording of the original orchestral version.

    Later on, if they became interested in the piano, I might get them this CD. From the audio clips on his website, he sounds very good.
