 An Essential Borodin Selection! September 1, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "I absolutely love this CD. I acquired it essentially for the Nocturne String Quartet in D, which is the most pleasing rendition of this old favorite that I have ever heard. Yet, The Steppes of Central Asia is equally pleasing as are the selections from Prince Igor and the other cuts. Borodin is a grossly unappreciated composer, and this magnificent selection proves it without a doubt. If I could give this CD 10 stars, I would do so. Don't hesitate! Buy it." Report Abuse
