Notes & Reviews:

This collection of works by Prokofiev includes the well-known and witty Symphonic Suite 'Lieutenant Kije', the music conceived originally for a film, together with the Suite from 'The Stone Flower' and the less well-known 'Dreams, Autumnal' and 'Andante' orchestrated from the First String Quartet. These are vintage performances by the then Scottish National Orchestra conduced by Neeme Jarvi, re-issued at mid-price on the Classics label for the first time and keeping the essence of the distinctive original artwork which was such a hallmark of the original Chandos presentation.

BBC Music Magazine
For an immediate handle on Neeme Järvi and the Scottish National Orchestra's Prokofiev series, then try Lieutenant Kijé from the first distant fanfare the sense of magical fantasy and colourful invention are brilliantly rendered and recorded.

Gramophone Magazine
His is a splendidly characterful performance which has the benefit of an excellent Chandos recording
