Notes & Reviews:

Glazunov's beautifully scored incidental music for Lermontov's play 'Masquerade' has only survived in manuscript. With characteristic genius, he illustrates both the glittering atmosphere and dances of splendid St Petersburg balls and depicts the horrifying descent into madness of the play's protagonist, Evgeny Arbenin, who jealously poisons his innocent wife. The shorter works on this disc likewise show Glazunov's amazing command of orchestral resources, whether evoking an exotic oriental vision, the vivacious spirit of Hungarian music, in the 'Pas de caractere', or painting a mood of gentle romantic lyricism.

”The Russian Philharmonic shows off its solo and sectional virtues repeatedly in this colorful music, and to good advantageThis album offers good sound, and attractive readings. Recommended.”-Fanfare
