Notes & Reviews:

The is the final volume of Onyx's critically praised Prokofiev symphony cycle with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under Kirill Karabits. It contains the Symphony in G, the composer's earliest attempt at a symphony, written in 1902 when he was just 11 years old. The work receives its world premiere recording on this disc. Also included are the 1947 version of the Symphony No.4 and the daunting and emotionally charged Symphony No.6, which to some represents the greatest of the seven symphonies.

Irish Times, 26th November 2015
There's an admirable neutrality in Karabits's approach, expressively judicious and sonically refined, embracing both optimism and darkness without ever going overboard.

The Arts Desk, 2nd January 2016
There's much to admire in Kirill Karabits' performance. There's plenty of colour and character in the orchestral playing and tempi feel consistently right.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra plays with conviction and virtuosity throughout the Sixth. And it's equally adept in the expanded version of the Fourth, which here seems far less structurally discursive than in many other performances.
