  • ‘Here in this live recording, [Gianandrea Noseda] delivers a commanding performance and the musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra oblige with committed playing and plenty of sonic muscle.’
    – Classical Music Sentinel

    ‘Here [Gianandrea Noseda] reveals the colours and romantic links to Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo & Juliet as well as the nervier elements of that second movement, and the playing of the LSO is scintillating, well recorded too.'
    – BBC Radio 3 Record Review

    ‘Principal guest conductor Gianandrea Noseda, and the players of the London Symphony Orchestra do full justice to Prokofiev’s range of emotions, from quiet reflection to spirited exuberance.’
    – North East Post


Gianandrea Noseda, London Symphony Orchestra

Prokofiev sends an urgent musical bulletin from Stalin’s Russia with his Symphony No. 5—music of iron and steel, forged in a time of war and tyranny.

“There was certainly plenty of optimism and heroism in Noseda’s approach to the symphony, and he conducted a pitch-perfect account, with all sections of the LSO blazing at every given opportunity. This was an exemplary performance, luckily recorded for release on the orchestra’s own label: LSO Live.” – Keith McDonnell, Seen and Heard International

Gianandrea Noseda is known for his mastery of Russian repertoire, and his Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich recordings on the LSO’s own label have attracted glowing reviews. This album marks the second in a new cycle of Prokofiev symphonies with Noseda and the LSO, following Symphony No 1, released in March 2023.
