Notes & Reviews:

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 Kije' suite and the March from the opera 'The Love of Three Oranges.' Neeme Jarvi and the Scottish National Orchestra, a legendary partnership that are as famous for their brilliance of performance as for their brilliance of sound are recorded here in a Prokofiev series classic for the digital age.
