A perfect War & Peace 19 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This version of the monumental work of Prokofiev is simply wonderful. Galina Vishnevskaya and Lajos Miller (Natasha and Andrej) are the best of the disc. Nicola Ghiuselev is a very strong, and patriotic, Marshal Kutuzov. Wieslaw Ochman is not a Gedda (Anatoly in this recording), but the dramatism of his interpretation is a fine work. Gedda sing again with Vishnevskaya (Boris, Lady Macbeth, etc.) and the results are wonderful. But the best of the recording is Mstislav Rostropovich, a director who knows how play the russian repertory. In minor roles: Michel Senechal like Monsieur de Boësset, Mariana Paunova (strong Akhrossimova), Dimiter Petkov (Boris in the "Lady Macbeth" of EMI), and Nathalie Stutzmann and Catherine Dubosc. "War and Peace" is a dense work (four hours), but the scenes are a fine picture of the Napoleon's invassion. The first half of the opera is concentrated in the figure of Natasha (Peace), and the second half is the invassion (War); in this part the males roles have more importance. In resume, a wonderful recording, with a marathonic cast, but the four hours are like two. P. S. : Sorry for my english.

Magnificent Recording of a Russian Masterpiece 11 Jan. 2007
By Marc Musnick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this opera. It's so spralling and a bit flawed but it never fails to wipe me out. Rostropovitch promised Prokofiev to keep this work alive and champion performing it complete. This concert version from 1986 is, I believe, note complete. It's a magnificent recording achievment with a strong cast and clearly the first choice as a recording. Rostropovitch's tempi always tend to be slow but that brings out the rich and complicated orchestration better and his wife, legendary Russian soprano Galina Vischneskaya is past her prime but she still sings beautifully in one of her most famous roles. The rest of the cast is first rate and robust sounding. The choral work is thrilling.

Of the three available recordings, and I'm familiar with the other two, this is clearly the recording to have. There's an historical connection here that's not to be ignored. And I really believe, the score is complete. Thre's certainly extended choral work that I've never heard before.

Stellar recording of one of the longest single-evening operas 3 Nov. 2012
By Alexander Z. Damyanovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although I watched a few times a videotape of the Gjérgijev recording (which of course in VHS format lacked the spectacular sound a CD or DVD would have), it's with THIS recording that I've now gotten to know this work.

I well remember what Harold C. Schönberg (putting back the umlauts that so concerned the composer Arnold Schoenberg so as to cause him to respell his name) said of this opera in his book "The Lives of the Great Composers": "skilful puerilities". Definitely there are parts where this condemnation weighs on this reviewer's mind - but NOT all of the work deserves to be so written off, although it's often less than satisfying on account of its relatively-poor organization musically. [Prokófjev was almost slavishly following the Verdian model, one which really is deeply unsatisfying to this writer. At the same time, that he managed (he and his second wife were joint librettists) to make anything half-decent in operatic form out of an extra-large and varied canvas as painted by Ljév Ñikolájevich Tolstóy's original novel is quite an achievement in itself!]

Several of the 13 tableaux start off with some lovely music, and - even in spite of the Stáljinists pushing him to write more interpolations of what nowadays would be considered "pop choruses" - there are some really lovely moments. Among them are when Field-Marshal (Mikhaíl Ilariónovich Goljeñíshchjev-) Kutúzov contemplates the fate of Moscow and all Russia toward the end of Tableau X (one of the best in this writer's opinion); Tableaux VIII and IX truly DO bring home the horror of ANY war, any battle of both the past and nowadays!! One also appreciates the bustle of Tableau II as well as parts of Prince Andrjéy Ñikolájevich Bolkónskiy's death in Tableau XII. [To be honest: Tableau XIII feels half-empty with the last movements celebrating Russia's triumph; while a few of the patriotic choruses of Tableaux VIII and XI could likewise be cut to the work's profit.]

Ultimately, to make this opera, cut or uncut, work such that one can ignore its definite flaws and occasional lack of inspiration, one needs a TOTALLY-COMMITTED performance on the part of the conductor, orchestra, choir and ALL of the VERY MANY soloists (almost ALL of which MUST be filled by major stars!! - a major reason, in addition to its length, why this work is so relatively seldom-performed) - and this recording SURE PROVIDES IT!!! It's obvious that the late Mstíslav Ljeopóljdovich Rostropóvich deeply loved this work, and he sure knew to ignite the full passions of his singers (a major standout is Vishñévskaja - she may be a bit old for the young Natásha Rostóva, but she nevertheless SHINES!!) and the Orchestre National de France. [Of the other soloists, Nicolai Gedda is perfectly appropriate for the villain Anatóljiy Kurágin, Wieslaw Ochman is a truly-ardent and lovely Pjótr (Pierre) Kiríllovich Bjezúkhov and Lajos Miller brings out Andrjéy Bolkónskiy's nobility and tenderness beautifully. One also shudders at the crustiness and brutality of the old Prince Ñikoláy Andrjéjevich Bolkónskiy (well done by Ánton Djakóv!), strongly empathises with the care and concern of Maríja Dmitrjévna Akhrossímova (Maria Paunova), and notices real nobility on the part of Napoléon Bonaparte (Edward Tumagian).]

One could go on and on: truly, it seems that one has a reasonable number of other good, even great, recordings of this sprawling and uneven work (Gjérgijev, Hickox); however, in the end one still can't go wrong with this recording of Rostropóvich - BRAVO!! The only thing I could truly fault of this recording (aside from a few cases of the singers' being preferred over the orchestra) is the libretto-booklet!! I hold against it: 1) it does NOT supply the original Russian text (either in Cyrillic or Latin-transliterated) - which it was supposed to do; 2) the French, German and English translations vary very significantly in terms of what material is included (the English seems the most thorough), and 3) some shoddy mistranslation work (as well as spelling and punctuation errors!) is glaringly obvious!!! Absolutely SHAMEFUL and unworthy of this great recording!!! [I would like to hope that either Gjérgijev and/or Hickox would have better efforts, from what I've read in the reviews of those respective recordings - if that be the case, I'd recommend using those booklets with this recording instead. I also hope that someday one will put up the original Russian text on the Internet.]

All the same, 5 stars!!!!
The Art of Prokofiev and Rostropovich 18 Aug. 2014
By Paul Kimes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There something unique about the way Mstislav Rostropovich conducts the works of 20th century Russian composers. You may have your own favorite conductors, I listen to a variety myself. However there is an unmistakable quality, and character to Rostropovich's interpretation that drew Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Schnittke to him. This a collector's edition and the recording quality goes without saying. Galina Vishnevsky's voice took a little bit of time to get used to for me. That is not a criticism. She does have an unmistakable and beautiful talent. If you want to complete a collection of the works of Rostropovich you must include this recording.

Great opera, great recording, not flawless. 5 Jun. 2012
By C. One - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great opera, and probably the best recording out there, but it is not flawless. Considering the scale of the opera, however (over 70 characters and a fairly large chorus too!) this is a great recording and well worth getting. That said, there are a one or two roles that could have used better casting (though I imagine it would have been financially inhibitive to get perfect singers for every single role). The audio quality is not perfect, clearly being taken off of an LP, though for that, it is not bad audio quality either. Overall, I would recommend this recording and hope for an even better one to be made in the future.
