Notes & Reviews:

This release contains two of the greatest orchestral showpieces in the repertoire Rimsky Korsakov’s superbly scored and dramatic orchestral suite based on stories from “The Arabian Nights,” and his colorful depiction of the Russian Orthodox Easter festival, combining both traditional tunes with liturgical chant. Charles Dutoit is one of the greatest exponents of this repertoire, and together with his new orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, delivers performances of great passion and exhilaration. This is the first of a series of recordings from Dutoit and the RPO to be released by Onyx.

International Record Review
[Clio Gould] offers a ravishing account of the solo violin narrative thread linking the different episodes in the music. Her playing has a fragile beauty...the splendid performance of the Easter Festival Overture conjures up a heady atmosphere of bells and swirling incense. The playing is most refined...making one marvel again at Rimsky's colourful orchestration.
