 Authentic stuff June 25, 2014 By William W. (Sewickley, PA) See All My Reviews "At least the Russians have the good sense to use the cardboard/soft plastic CD containers that I wish had been used by all since day 1 of the CD era. They have informative booklets, no plastic hinges to break off, no plastic containers to crack. The teeth hold the CD firmly. As to the music on this one, Svetlanov is in his element here, and I wonder why the Overture to "Ivan Susanin" (originally "A Life for the Tsar", but Soviet heads couldn't allow such a word) is not more popular. I like it even better than "Ruslan und Ludmila". The "Prince Igor" Overture, Dawn on the Moscow River, and the 4 Overtures/Preludes by Rimsky-Korsakov ("Sadko", "May Night", " Tsar's Bride" & "Maid of Pskov") are all quasi-warhorses, but Svetlanov does a good job with them. Oddly, the "Rusalka" Overture by Dargomyzsky is monophonic, even though Melodiya gives a recording date of 1971 (maybe from a broadcast, though no evidence of that). All the other items have recording dates from 1963 to 1977, in very acceptable stereo." Report Abuse
