Prokofiev's last ballet, The Stone Flower, is among the composer's final works. It is very tuneful, with twenty or more attractive melodies, many recycled from earlier Prokofiev works: the festive No. 7, Round Dance, is borrowed from the two-part film score for Ivan the Terrible; Nos. 14, Katerina and Danilo, and 19, Waltz of the Diamonds, are sourced in Music for Children, for piano, Op.

The Tale of the Stone Flower, Op. 118 (Russian: Сказ о каменном цветке), is Sergei Prokofiev's eighth and last ballet, written between 1948 and 1953. It is based on the Russian Ural folk tale The Stone Flower by Pavel Bazhov and is also the last of the trilogy of ballets Prokofiev wrote in the Russian ballet tradition. It was premiered posthumously in 1954, conducted by Yuri Fayer. 1 The Mistress of the Copper Mountain.

The Tale of the Stone Flower' is Prokofiev's last ballet, and he never lived to see it performed. This is Chandos' first recording with Gianandrea Noseda, the new Principal Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic. His work with the orchestra has been greeted with tremendous enthusiasm.

Sergei Prokofiev conceived the Stone Flower as a grand ballet in the tradition of Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake. Originally, Prokofiev had a different subject in mind - Pushkin's The Stone Guest - but chose a national ballet following the infamous Zhdanov degree of 1948. However, Prokofiev had more than a passing interest in the story, set the Urals, as he had traveled in the area as a young man and had been impressed by the beauty of the mountains.

A warm, colourful performance such as this from the BBC Philharmonic under Gianandrea Noseda, makes one appreciate that The Stone Flower deserves a place in the repertory even alongside Prokofiev's two balletic masterpieces, Romeo and Juliet and Cinderella. The chain of numbers over four acts ends in a triumphant Adagio and a bold epilogue with a touch of Hollywood in it,.
