Notes & Reviews:

An album of Borodin orchestral gems from Ole Schmidt and the Royal Philharmonic. One of the most significant Russian composers of the nineteenth century, this disc presents some of Borodin's most popular and important works: his second symphony, the symphonic poem "In the Steppes of Central Asia," and orchestral selections from his opera "Prince Igor." This brilliant and rich performance of Schmidt and the RPO has received a rave three-star review from the Penguin Guide.

Penguin Guide
Too long neglected on disc, Ole Schmidt and the Royal Philharmonic, with ideal couplings, offers an outstanding version at budget price of the Second Symphony... Beautifully played and recorded in vivid, open sound, one of the very finest at any price.

Notes & Reviews:
