Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Richly played and caught with a vividness arresting even for SACD...Pletnev gives [the Mlada excerpt] immense scale.

Gramophone Magazine
Pletnev and his virtuoso orchestra make a charming sound picture of the Dance of the Birds, woodwind all a-twitter, and leap with plenty of vigour into the single most popular item, the Dance of the Clowns, or Skomorokhi...the death and transfiguration of the Princess Fevronia...is evocatively played.
