About

Prokofiev’s melodies often have a singing quality that – allied to their harmonic tartness and rhythmic bite – makes them ideally suited to the violin, and so it is hardly surprising that violinists have raided the rest of his output to make more of those tunes their own. This recording presents 37 such transcriptions, drawn from his music for the piano and the stage.

‘It is a real bran-tub of treats, some familiar (the March from The Love for Three Oranges arranged as a showpiece encore by Jascha Heifetz; the Waltz from the opera War and Peace) and some rarities (incidental music composed for a theatrical portrait of Cleopatra and for a production of Pushkin’s verse drama Boris Godunov that never actually saw the stage) but all impregnated with the sweet-sour spiky-beguiling flavour that tells you instantly who created them.’ – Anthony Phillips
