One of the great composers of the Soviet era, Russian composer Sergey Prokofiev’s bold and colourful music embraces both nineteenth and twentieth century idioms in a style of its own. Prokofiev’s striking orchestral textures and his music is celebrated for both its melody and lyrical beauty and he ranks among the most enjoyable of all twentieth-century composers.

Some of Prokofiev’s most striking and famous music is included here, centering on the thrilling ballet Romeo and Juliet.

The disc includes widely popular pieces such as the Troika from the Lieutenant Kijé suite and the March from the opera The Love for Three Oranges.

Neeme Järvi and the Scottish National Orchestra, a legendary partnership, are as famous for their brilliance of performance as for their brilliance of sound. Their Prokofiev series for Chandos is a classic of the digital age.

Beautiful, persuasive playing from the Scottish National Orchestra
