The Scythian Suite contains hectically rhythmic and dissonant music some what in the vein of early Stravinsky. The Love for Three Oranges was written under commission in the United States and was the only one of his operas to win international fame in his lifetime. The Symphony No. 5 was composed in the darkest days of World War II and it's premiere in 1945 was heard against the thunderous background of an artillery salute.
Sergey Prokofiev (1891-1953): Symphony No. 6 in E-flat minor (Op. 111) in 1947-47). Premièred in January 1945, Sergei Prokofiev’s optimistic and heroic Fifth Symphony had seemed to herald the victorious end of World War Two. In stark contrast to this, his Symphony N., which received its first performance in 1947, is one of his deepest and most personal works. Although it was greeted with enthusiasm by the audience, the Soviet authorities were critical of the work and in 1948 a Party resolution singled it out as ‘abnormal’ and ‘repellent’. His calendar includes debuts with the Singapore Symphony and the National Taiwan Symphony.

Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 6 is one of his most profound and personal works, here interpreted by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra with Andrew Litton. The symphony is coupled with two short works, including the suite from The Love for Three Oranges, whose vivid musical images communicate Prokofiev’s penchant for light-hearted musical satire. 96 kHz, 24-bit PCM – BIS Studio Masters.
