Classics - Prokofiev: Chout Suite Op 21a, Love For Three Oranges Suite Op 33a, Etc / Neeme Järvi, Scottish No
High Performance Review wrote of this recording at its original release, 'Prokofiev's ballet score [The Buffoon] was written for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, but it's doubtful that any ballet company ever has danced to such vivid, raucous playing as Järvi inspires in this concert suite. Chandos has blessed the Scottish National Orchestra with bright, airy, near demonstration quality sounds, and Järvi provides an enthusiastic reading that sparkles with an abundance of characterful wit and dances with good humour'. The music from The Buffoon is complemented here by two further colourful suites, that from the opera The Love for Three Oranges and the lesser-known, late Waltz Suite, which brings together music from the opera War and Peace, the ballet Cinderella and the film Lermontov. 'Järvi and his orchestra produce brilliantly exciting performances, which are stunningly recorded', wrote Australian Hi-Fi and Music Review.
