Both The Love for Three Oranges and The Buffoon feature a great deal of clowning around--something Prokofiev was extremely good at illustrating musically. His early ballets have not received the recognition they deserve, and while it would be wrong to claim that they are all masterpieces, they are full of good music and certainly fun to hear at home. What they definitely lack is the Romantic tunefulness of his later works; they sport more of a hard-edged orchestral brilliance. This does not mean that melody is absent--the March from The Love for Three Oranges is in fact the composer's single most famous tune. So if you just relax and have fun with the music, you'll find yourself well rewarded. --David Hurwitz

By B. R. Merrick on July 12, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Prokofiev's orchestrations, like Beethoven's, are naturally heavy. As a composer known for his precocity, the weight of the orchestration is obviously meant as an in-your-face dare. It is therefore important to exploit this fact as much as possible.

Aided by wonderful technical recording aspects, Järvi's interpretation of Prokofiev's symphonies and other symphonic works is unmatched. These recordings with the Scottish National Orchestra contain great acoustic reverberation, ecstatic woodwinds, fiery strings, and blaring brass. If you're a fan of French Horns especially, then you'll love these recordings.

Järvi never loses a sense of playfulness. The orchestra stays together quite nicely, and you may actually have to turn the volume down at times! There are certainly other terrific recordings of Prokofiev's orchestral works. I'm mainly thinking of an old recording of the Fifth I had with Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra. But why bother? Your search stops here.

Desert Island Disk. Sergei Prokofiev is one of my favorite composers and Neeme Jarvi is a great interpreter/conductor of Prokofiev's music.
