Sergey Prokofiev is acknowledged as one of the 20th century's greatest composers, and his enduring popularity today rests on a rich legacy of orchestral and chamber works. Less well known are his songs, which display a lyrical component that suited his liking for clear and simple forms. This can be heard particularly in Five Poems of Anna Akhmatova, but all of these pieces show Prokofiev to be a worthy successor of the great 19th-century tradition of art songs. Margarita Gritskova's voice was described by Opera News as 'a spectacular instrument' in her recording of Russian Songs previously released on Naxos.
