 Was expecting much more... September 3, 2017 By H. Ventura (Mililani, HI) See All My Reviews "The Russian Radio/TV Orchestra of St. Petersburg sounds like an under rehearsed pick up group. They're just not feeling the music and the recording doesn't help either. They don't sound committed to the music and sections are playing in insolation. These are Russian musicians? It's okay but don't expect anything beyond their level. Inexpensive enough to shrug off." Report Abuse
 Fun Works for the Young May 18, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "These light fun-filled works can be enjoyed by the young of heart. No deep and profound meanings here-- it is what it is. I don't have any other examples of these pieces to compare performances with but it all sounds good to me. Best of all the audio is great: the top end might shatter expensive stem ware crystal and the bottom end will rattle your windows. Hey, you can't have more fun than this for $5-." Report Abuse
