Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Gergiev conduct an expressive and frequently exciting Swan Lake. There is passion aplenty, some lovely lyricism, and genuine excitement. Decca’s DDD sound is rich and clear; the bass shakes the room, yet orchestral details are clear and distinct."

-- David L. Kirk, Fanfare [3/2008]
