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.   

The Prodigal Son was Prokofiev’s last project for the impresario Sergey Diaghilev, who died the year after the ballet was first staged, and in it the composer made his first venture into a musical world dominated not by rhythm but by melody. Järvi and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra here perform the fascinating score complete, adding the Divertimento, the Andante which Prokofiev orchestrated from the central slow movement of his Piano Sonata No.4, Op.29, and the relatively unknown Symphonic Song.

Of the original release The Canberra Times wrote, ‘The playing throughout is first class, Järvi has a fine feeling for the special qualities of the music, and the engineering is excellent. This is a most attractive disc of the lesser-known music of Prokofiev, which also offers much listening pleasure’.

American Record Guide commented, ‘Once again, Chandos provides their usual reverberant and vibrant sound. In all its facets, this innovative and distinguished release continues their Prokofiev winning streak’.
