I was browsering on Apple Music recently, and found this album :
Just by the cover of this ablum itself, you can get so many critical data points out of it:
- This recording is Prokofiev playing by himself
- This has a soviet badge on it.
- This has a soviet badge on it but it is recorded with London Symphony Orchestra
- There is Concerto No.3
After investigating into the album a little bit further, I got even surprised more: the recording of this album was actually made at Abbey Road Studios in London, which yes as you may guessed the same studio that the Beatles used to hang out with, and recorded their last album at:
Prokofiev himself made the first recording of the Piano Concerto No. 3 in June 1932 with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Piero Coppola. The recording was made at Abbey Road Studios in London and is the only recording that exists of Prokofiev performing one of his own piano concertos. --- "PROKOFIEV: Piano Concerto No. 3 / Vision Fugitives (Prokofiev) (1932, 1935)".
