The famous Russian director Sergei Eisenstein held Prokofiev the film composer in the highest regard, and to couple their two celebrated collaborations, Ivan the Terrible and Alexander Nevsky, in a two-disc set is therefore entirely appropriate. Ivan the Terrible, however, is a problematic score. Assembled by Abram Stassevich after the composer’s death, the oratorio lacks the large-scale balances and tensions of Prokofiev’s own Nevsky cantata, relying on narration to hold the structure together. This substantial English version by Michael Lankester, intended to ‘compensate for the lack of visual image’, is well projected by Christopher Plummer. Rostropovich directs a vivid performance of Alexander Nevsky, and only the rich tone of Russian voices is lacking. The LSO plays brilliantly, while the recording does full justice to one of Prokofiev’s finest scores.

The Torrent family is a multi-purpose typeface with large wedge-formed serifs. Its letters have large x-height and wide-open counterforms. Some joins have been opened up, too – between the straights and the diagonals of ‘K’ and ‘k,’ as well as the vertical center of the ‘R,’ for instance. Torrent’s letterforms have a higher stroke-contrast model, one that is typical for serif typefaces that are intended for use in lengthy passages of text. Indeed, Torrent is a highly readable text face and will look clear even when used in less-than-optimal printing situations (cheaper paper and ink, high-speed presses, etc.). In smaller sizes, Torrent’s wedge-shaped serifs won’t suffer any loss of detail. In fact, wedges of this sort are a hallmark of contemporary serif type design. Torrent is an excellent serif choice for use in book design or editorial design work, as well as in magazines, packaging, and publication design applications.

J'étais un enfant dépossédé du monde. Par le décret d'une volonté antérieure à la mienne, je devais renoncer à toute possession en cette vie. Je touchais au monde par fragments, ceux-là seuls qui m'étaient immédiatement indispensables, et enlevés aussitôt leur utilité terminée. […]
