Notes & Reviews:

Betrayal, torture, execution, murder and madness are all present in Tchaikovsky's fascinating portrayal of anti-hero Mazeppa and his world, dramatically realized in Neeme Jarvi's heady account with the Gothenburg forces and Russian principals. "Thrillingly sung and vividly conducted" -The Penguin Guide

BBC Music Magazine
This neglected opera has so many wonderful things in it. Gorchakova is a shrill heroine, but the rest of the cast is superb. The recording is amazing.
