Notes & Reviews:

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. Jarvi 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.

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

Canberra Times
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
