Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle Symphony continue their triumphant survey of Rimsky-Korsakov with a new recording of four orchestral suites. The folk tale of The Snow Maiden is interpreted in four enchanting movements, and that of Sadko in a single, radiantly descriptive tone-poem. The thrilling legend of Mlada is represented by vivid dances and a final Cortege. The Suite from his final opera Le Coq d'or is richly dramatic and expressive.
