Notes & Reviews:

"Kondrashin undoubtedly knew this music as well as any conductor, but the crack musicians that RCA assembled for these sessions - Oscar Shumsky was the concertmaster - must also have been inspired by this early crack in the Cold War that had denied us most contact with Soviet musicians...The sound has been effectively transferred to digital technology...At mid price this CD is a steal and deserves to be in any collection that needs these colorful works." -Bauman, Fanfare
