R.I.P. SPEARO MY FRIEND, I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!
Most older listeners agree that Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé Suite was ideal repertoire for Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. With its big tunes, bright colors, bold harmonies, and unrelenting rhythms, Reiner and the Chicago — the pre-eminent Strauss performers in America at the time — excelled in Prokofiev’s Kiji. In this superb recording, Reiner and the Chicago are at the top of their form and their Kiji is witty, sassy, brave, ironic, and altogether hilarious.
