Notes & Reviews:

"Valery Gergiev's new version of Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Scherazade' pins you back with its red-blooded thrust and sound of a fullness and brilliance I have never known in a Russian recording before. From the start Gergiev, magnetically sustains the musical narrative, dispelling any idea that this programme work stops and starts too frequently. For me it sets a new benchmark version of a much-duplicated showpiece." - Critics Choice, Edward Greenfield, Gramophone
