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.   

No Prokofiev recorded anthology would be complete without a performance of Peter and the Wolf, and here the narrator comes in the person of Lina Prokofiev, the composer’s widow. Recorded for Chandos when she was nearly ninety, Music magazine deemed this recording ‘first choice’ and it offers a most delightful and magnetic performance.

It is complemented here with a suite from the ballet Cinderella, Gramophone describing the recorded performance as ‘warmly persuasive, bringing out the sensuousness… As in earlier records of the series, the playing is rich and brilliant’.

The disc is completed with a number of shorter pieces, all associated with poetical works by Alexander Pushkin.
