Notes & Reviews:
Orfeo ed Euridice by Yevstigney Fromin was premiered in 1795 at the end of Catherine II's reign and had a significant effect on the development of Russian culture.

The notes also say that Pratrum Integrum, founded in 2003, is the first orchestra in Russia with a full range of period instruments. The playing is as crisp, energetic, highly dramatic, sweetly lyrical, and finely tuned as you'll find anywhere. The Haydnesque music itself, especially when served up so stunningly, is very inventive, dramatic, and, in a few selections, highly lyrical in three-quarter time. I highly recommend it to artistic directors on the lookout for something new of superb quality. A presentation of this melodrama would make for a splendid half of an evening by the Boston Early Music Festival, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, or any number of other period ensembles.
