Notes & Reviews:

This album of Russian Dances is beautifully performed by Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, under the baton of Kazuki Yamada. The album contains masterful works from brilliant conductors, including Tchaikovsky's Suite from Swan Lake, Glazunov's Two Concert Waltzes, Shostakovich's The Golden Age, and Stravinsky's Circus Polka. The album does an excellent job of preserving the important role that ballet has in Russian musical culture.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande boast a fine pedigree when it comes to Russian ballet... [and] under Kazuki Yamada, the orchestra continues that tradition, though in weightier sound and weightier performances... [an] enjoyable if random collection.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2016
[A] hugely enjoyable and beautifully recorded programme... Kazuki Yamada and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande revel in the very different qualities of each work.
