Notes & Reviews:

Evgeny Svetlanov's was a masterly conductor of of Russian and non-Russian composers of the late-Romantic era. The Brahms is both powerful and mellifluous, superbly played by the LSO. The Debussy has tension from the start, combining colour, sensitivity and transparency. The bonus consists of Janet Baker singing the final song from Chausson's Poeme de l'amour et de la mer. The Brahms and Debussy are previously issued. Recorded at Royal Festival London, 1975.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
We remember Svetlanov (1928-2002) primarily for his 35 years conducting the USSR Orchestra, where his emotional, often overwrought performances of Russian music were much admired. His discography of Russian music is immense. All in all, this is a fine example of Svetlanov in unfamiliar territory. The sound is very good for 1975.
