Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
In this re-issue Chandos brings together Prokofiev's epic and colourful cinematic cantata Alexander Nevsky (referring to the original disc, CD Review called it 'the greatest performance and recording of this I have ever heard, live or on disc'), the powerful Scythian Suite (derived from the composer's mythological ballet Ala et Lolly, written for Diaghilev) and the suite from the ballet The Steel Dance.

Gramophone, too, praised Järvi's performance of Alexander Nevsky, ranking it as first choice: 'Järvi catches the icy bitterness of the Russian winter snows at the very opening and is pungently overwhelming in the "Battle of the Ice"... It's difficult to envisage anyone quite matching Järvi's intimidatory SNO brass in this score's more savage pages... a terrific display, excitingly engineered.'

Hi-Fi News wrote, 'Listening to this has been a little like running some Technicolor, super-Panavision, Dolby stereo remake of Eisenstein's 1938 black-and-white classic through one's head. Such is Järvi's graphic and wonderfully evocative sense of the visual and cinematic... and once again Järvi is handsomely served in his epic endeavours by some quite spectacular Chandos engineering'
As a young man Prokofiev was regarded as something of an enfant terrible largely on the strength of the first and Second piano Concertos and the Scythian Suite. The latter, scored for forces almost as large as those used in Le Sacre du Primtemps, earned him an altogether undeserved reputation as an iconoclast. In fact, Prokofiev was for more of a traditionalist at heart, and throughout his career he was drawn towards tradition forms - the sonata, the concerto and the symphony - though his genius flowered equally in the freer forms of the ballet and suite. The harmonic audacities of his early works gave way to a new simplicity that was already to be discerned before his return to the USSR in the early 1930s.
