The Gambler represents the musical character of Prokofiev the iconoclastic young revolutionary at his most unbridled. The work was revised in 1927-28 for its first production in Brussels on 29 April 1929, as Le Joueur. It was not heard in the UK until the 1962 Edinburgh festival, nor in Russia until a broadcast in 1963. The symphonic Four Portraits dates from 1931, and was written in response to the interest created by the first performance of The Gambler.

Highly recommended for anyone for whom the operas remain enigmas
