Prokofiev’s colourful ballet score, Cinderella, is chock full of witty, vibrant music, by turns spiky and lushly romantic. The Quarrel of the Ugly Sisters, Cinderella’s Waltz and the memorable Midnight Hour are among the Suite’s highlights. No less richly melodic is Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto. By contrast, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony hurtles along with boundless energy.
