Prokofiev: The Prodigal Son; Divertimento; Symphonic Song, etc. SNO, Järvi.

‘The Divertimento is a lovely piece: its first movement has an irresistible and haunting second theme. Its long neglect is puzzling since it is highly attractive and ought to be popular. So, for that matter, should The Prodigal Son, some of whose material Prokofiev re-used the following year in the Fourth Symphony. Another rarity is the Symphonic Song, a strange, darkly scored piece. The recording is first class – as, indeed, are the performances. An indispensable item in any Prokofiev collection.’
