About

Chandos brings together a fine programme of Prokofiev’s orchestral works to add to its Classics series, offering an initial 6 unique discs performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conducted by Neeme Jarvi. Familiar performers on the Chandos label, they are renowned for their Prokofiev interpretations.   

Included on this re-issue is a mixture of familiar and little-known repertoire.  The well-known and witty Symphonic Suite, Lieutenant Kije, Opus 60 conceived as a film score, is complemented by The Suite from ‘The Stone Flower’ Op 118 and the lesser-known works Dreams Op.6, Autumn and Andante Op.50.

Gramophone wrote of Jarvi’s performance of Lieutenant Kijé, “His is a splendidly characterful performance which has the benefit of an excellent Chandos recording.”  

The Northern Echo commented on the release, “This is vintage Prokofiev, quirky and pungent in places but always full of interest...a very satisfying record.
