The Alexander Nevsky cantata was created by Prokofiev from the film score he wrote in 1938 for Sergei Eisenstein's biographical epic about Alexander Nevsky (1220-63), Grand Duke of Vladimir and early Russian national hero. Although the original sound track exhibited severe distortion and a pinched frequency range, subsequent performances-both of the film score and of this cantata-by several fine groups do greater justice to the music, which Valery Gergiev has called "the best ever composed for the cinema. The young Slatkin and his St Louis Orchestra surpass themselves. As a lover of the great Eisenstein film, the whole experience just takes you back to the great evocative scenes of the battle on the ice, the faceless Teutonic Knights and so on. In fact, the vibrant conducting and music-making here really shows how much more interesting and exciting Slatkin was in his early days!
