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’.

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 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.

The final disc in the series collects extremely rare music by this undoubtedly great composer, and Prokofiev admirers will simply have to have this, not only because the music is so infrequently encountered but also because it is so very well done
International Record Review

Fabulous playing here, and among the couplings is some of the music that didn’t make it into the ballet, recast as the finale of the Divertimento. The other items emphasise the value of Järvi’s Prokofiev series.
