Notes & Reviews:
Full of exotic delights, this colourful score is reminiscent of both 'Prince Igor' and 'Sheherazade', but still very much Nielsen's own. First released by Chandos in 1993, this was the first recording of the complete score. 'The Musical Times' commented at the time, "the special value of such a recording is enhanced by the quality of the performance, for the exotic character is well suited to Rozhdestvensky's larger than life musical personality." 'The Daily Telegraph' wrote, "Nielsen at his symphonic best... you will be thrilled and captivated throughout."
