David Fleshler South Florida Classical Review
“Although Prokofiev made three suites of selections from his ballet Cinderella, Denève prepared his own, intended to emphasis the most dramatic and romantic elements of the score. Under his baton, the orchestra gave a richly colored, brilliantly played performance in one of those scores that show off the orchestra at its most sensuous. There was radiant string playing throughout, but especially in the “Introduction and Amoroso,” in passages that soared in a manner evocative of the fairy tale on which they were based. The quick running melody of the Waltz was pulsing and dramatic under Denève’s baton, as he made the melody slow and accelerate in a way that suggested the growing passion of the dancers.”
