Notes & Reviews:
In spite of its lukewarm reception, Tchaikovksy considered his eighth full-length opera, Cherevichki, his "finest work." Indeed, the work is filled with luminous orchestral writing, sumptuous arias, frolicsome dances, and humor, but it has continued to languish in relative obscurity. This recording, under the esteemed baton of Gennady Rozhdestvensky, seeks to change all of that with skillful and imaginative performances by the singers, chorus, and orchestra alike.
BBC Music Magazine, April 2013
A welcome return to the catalogue for Rozhdestvensky's idiomatic reading of the revised 1887 version of what is often called The Tsarina's Slippers. An all-Russian cast does the work full justice.
