This CD offers performances of Prokofiev 6 and the Waltzes that are well played and recorded and are very competitive. I've never cared for the Jarvi P6, mainly because the Chandos recording is lacking in low end - so essential in Prokofiev - and because the SNO does not have the right sound for this music. My favorite is Previn/LA Phil but this Naxos CD worth while. The old Ormandy is also very good but is out of print, and Sony in their lack of wisdom hasn't issued it - I have a bootleg copy. Slatkin is also pretty good if a bit bland.

Both the Symphony No.6 and No.7 have often been criticized as being musically inferior to the first five of Prokofiev's symphonies, perhaps due to pressure the composer was receiving from the repressive Stalinist regime. Despite this, I have always liked them both, particularly the more complex Symphony No.6.

From the sound of it, I am guessing that this symphony is not easy to interpret.

Compared to this work, Prokofiev's much vaunted Fifth is structurally and emotionally fairly straight forward. On both of these levels, the No.6, or at least the opening movement of it, is all over the place! I believe the best way to approach and appreciate this wonderful work would be to closely follow what might be best described as the "mood shifts" that occur within it. At one moment the mood is dark, sometimes bordering on despair, at other times, "hopeful" and, finally, in the last movement,"frivolous" and "gay". Question: after all that you have heard in the first two movements and part of the third, do you believe the composer was really all that "happy and gay" or do you think he's just putting on a good front?

My favorite recording of the Symphony No.6 is Eugene Ormandy's formerly on CBS and now apparently lost somewhere in Sony's basement! Ormandy was a noted interpreter of Prokofiev (also of Kodaly,Rachmaninoff, Sibelius and Respighi!)and Sony should make all of his great recordings available to the world!

This is the best I've heard of several recordings currently available, including one by Neeme Jarvi and another by Andrew Litton. I think that maestro Kuchar is generally more patient and sensitive to the shifting emotional nuances than the others; not quite as sensitive as Eugene Ormandy.

I don't know if people are familiar with the Waltzes, but they are very interesting. A little different than Strauss! It helps to have the pocket score to follow along. I picked up the score in Moscow, otherwise I probably would never have heard of the waltzes. They're good. Anyone who likes 20th century Russian music will like them.

Magnificent recordings of sublime music. You will want to add this disc to your collection. I will confess that I have not heard the Neeme Jarvie disk, which I'm sure is fine, but this is a rich, lustrous rendering played with intelligence and passion. At this price, it's is an absolute steal.
