Celebrating the 130th anniversary of Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953), the present box set brings together recordings of his seven symphonies made by Andrew Litton and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra between 2012 and 2017. Released on separate discs, the series has received acclaim from international reviewers, variously highlighting the orchestra (“Bergen Philharmonic plays gorgeously…”, ClassicsToday.com), the conductor (“It is clear that Litton has a deep understanding of Prokofiev’s complex, protean style …”, MusicWeb-International) and the recordings themselves (“BIS’s blockbuster sound…”, Fanfare).


The symphonies appear with their original couplings, including the popular suites from the film score to Lieutenant Kijé and the ballet The Love for Three Oranges. As an added bonus, the set includes the team’s very first recording for BIS: an innovative and highly praised version of Prokofiev’s three suites from Romeo and Juliet, with the 20 movements reordered to follow the ballet score.
