played by pianist Malcolm Frager, with Rene Leibowitz and the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 1961 nominated the Frager recording for a Grammy, and since then the recording has become something of a cult classic,

In No. 2 we notice an opening section of light delicacy from Frager, a characteristic of the pianist we hear throughout the work, mixed in with all the hurly-burly. Because Prokofiev intended the piece in part as a requiem for a deceased friend, it can be somewhat somber at times. Yet Frager, with his legendary dexterity, keeps it pulsating forward at a healthy clip. It is unlikely anyone will ever surpass his warm, expressive rendering.
