Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
Kristjan Järvi's account is excellent. There is a welcome warmth to the MDR Leipzig strings, recorded in concert. He is generally a smidgen faster than Järvi Snr in most numbers. Highlights include an exhilarating 'Dance of the Tumblers', every bit as brilliant as Rimsky-Korsakov's...Sony's bright recording captures the sunshine in the score.
BBC Music Magazine, June 2016
A lively and engaging performance.

Jarvi's orchestra is lusty, rather than polished, but the singers give fruity solos.
