By Robert Cummings
"This has been for years touted as the definitive Prokofiev Second by a good many musicologists and record collectors. Recorded on December 20, 1937, three days after Heifetz and Koussevitsky gave the work its American premiere, it is riveting from first note to last. Naxos spares no expense here, using transfers by the esteemed Mark Obert-Thorn and intelligent notes by Tully Potter, not to mention a rare cover photo of Heifetz (from Potter's collection). In short, this production in every way is first-class. In the end, this must be counted as an important reissue, both for the performances and the high production values. Highly recommended."
