Notes and Editorial Reviews

"As a package, their claims are strong, both artistically and in terms of recording quality," awarded three stars by Penguin Guide. The Guardian wrote, "No one is more warmly dramatic in Prokofiev than Jarvi, making his issues consistently recommendable." As part of our on-going re-issue of Neeme Jarvi's famous Prokofiev Chandos now re-releases The Piano Concertos performed by Boris Berman and Horacio Gutiérrez with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. This has proved to be a very popular set in the past, and is now priced at one full price CD. Other Prokofiev releases available: CHAN 10500(4) X: Complete Symphonies CHAN 10484 X: Peter and Wolf CHAN 10482 X: Alexander Nevsky CHAN 10485 X: Semyon Kotko "As a package, their claims are strong, both artistically and in terms of recording quality," awarded three stars by Penguin Guide.
