Rimsky-Korsakov’s orchestral genius shines through in his colourful operatic suites, and that from his final opera Le Coq d’or is richly dramatic and expressive. The complicated folk-based story of the Snow Maiden is simplified into four enchanting movements, and that of Sadko into a single, radiantly descriptive tone-poem. The thrilling legend of Mlada is represented by vivid dances and a final Cortège. Gerard Schwarz’s recording of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade (8.572693) with the Seattle Symphony was described as ‘absolutely terrific’. (ClassicsToday.com)


   




Review By Em Marshall-Luck,MusicWeb International,August 2012

An excellent release from Naxos, this disc presents three orchestral operatic suites, from The Snow Maiden, Mlada and Le Coq d’or, and the “Musical Picture”, Sadko. Gerard Schwarz’s version of Sheherazade, also for Naxos, and again with the Seattle Symphony, received critical acclaim. This disc, likewise, gives the impression of a conductor who is fully in sympathy with the music and who brings out the best, both in the works performed, and from this really rather good orchestra.

Gerard Schwarz also conducts the excellent Settle Symphony in suites from the composer’s own favourite work… © 2011 New Classics
