Notes & Reviews:

This new disc from the BBC Philharmonic offers the ever-popular Capriccio Espagnol along with the rarely heard Overtures to The Maid of Pskov and The Tsar's Bride, displaying the composer's penchant for vividly coloristic orchestration, and other works that are unaccountably given few outings in the concert hall and on disc.

BBC Music Magazine
... Tsar's Bride... thrills with the riding rhythms of Ivan's rapacious followers, the oprichniki; Sinaisky takes it at a spacious but still exciting pace. The gentler but richly-hued aspects of Russian folklore in the tone-poem Legend, derived from Pushkin's Russlan i Lyudmila, Sinaisky captures with sparkle and energy, likewise the dancing, lyrical Sinfonietta on Russian Themes.

Gramophone Magazine
Rimsky's vivid music gets a rare outing in this exhilarating programme. The familiar Capriccio espagnole is also splendidly presented: Sinaisky's performance is expansive, warmly relaxed... the closing Fandango produces a burst of exhilarating bravura.
