Notes & Reviews:

"This is really beautiful-and a great introduction if you don't know Rachmaninoff's operas. There are 40 minutes from Aleko, which is generally considered the best of them. We get only a niggardly 14 minutes from The Niggardly Knight, but there are 22 minutes from Francesca. Those 22 minutes are very well chosen. They are almost all from Act II, leaving out most of the Prologue in hell and Act I. Act II is by far the best part of the opera; when I listen to the complete recording (with Vladimir Atlantov as Paolo-much better than this tenor) I often skip the Prologue and much of Act I. And the sound is wonderful: strong and immediate, to the point where the listener shivers with excitement. Never has the old gypsy's tale from Aleko sounded more breath-taking- and true (it's about the magical power of singing). The nine minutes of orchestral dances in this opera are also beautifully played." -ARG
