Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A definitive collection of Orchestral pops by a most popular Russian Composer.

Penguin Guide
An eminently recommendable survey of Glinka's orchestral output... playing of the USSR Symphony is nothing if not expert and idiomatic.

Gramophone
... lively and deliciously idiomatic collection of Glinka conducted by Evgeni Svetlanov. As well as the well-known Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture, there is the Overture to Ivan Susanin, two Spanish Overtures, a Polka in B flat and the incidental music to Prince Kholmsky. It's all done with tremendous character and verve the Waltz- Fantasie, written for one of the many young ladies who turned the composer's head, is unfurled with just the right amount of insouciance and lashings of charm. The recordings do full justice to Glinka's beautiful scoring. An enjoyable record, not to by miss by lovers of Russian music...
