The Prodigal Son was Prokofievís last project for the impresario Sergey Diaghilev, who died the year after the ballet was first staged, and in it the composer made his first venture into a musical world dominated not by rhythm but by melody.

Jšrvi and the Scottish National Orchestra here perform the fascinating score complete, adding the Divertimento, the Andante which Prokofiev orchestrated from the central slow movement of his Piano Sonata No.4, Op.29, and the relatively unknown Symphonic Song.
Reviews

The final disc in the series collects extremely rare music by this undoubtedly great composer, and Prokofiev admirers will simply have to have this, not only because the music is so infrequently encountered but also because it is so very well done
International Record Review

Fabulous playing here, and among the couplings is some of the music that didnít make it into the ballet, recast as the finale of the Divertimento. The other items emphasise the value of Jšrviís Prokofiev series.
