Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Nikola Malko took at active part in the musical life of the early Soviet regime and served as chief conductor of the Leningrad Philharmonic. He left Russia in 1929 and settled in Copenhagen and was a permanent guest conductor of the Danish State Radio Orchestra. He lived the England, the U.S. and Australia and conducted major orchestras in all these countries.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Nikolai Malko (1881-63) was a Russian conductor of considerable gifts. After fleeing the Soviet Union in 1929 he knocked around for decades before beginning what amounted to a second career, recording for EMI in Denmark and the UK. His work with Russian composers has always been highly regarded, and these 1953 performances will please anyone longing for that extra degree of passion, dash, and orchestral color. Malko is racy enough to please people who prefer Russian works performed with Russian style.
