Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eugene Onegin was Tchaikovsky’s first opera to a text by Alexander Pushkin, and it immediately brought him a masterpiece: Eugene Onegin was heard for the first time on the Moscow Conservatory’s small stage in 1878. Pushkin’s text and Tchaikovsky’s music appealed to the Russian soul, and today the work is performed in prestigious opera houses throughout the world. The Russian State Symphony Orchestra under the conductor Mark Gorenstein now performs this opera in Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in a concert version featuring outstanding singers – an impressive live documentation and at the same time a fine visiting card for this great orchestra.

With its some 120 members the State Symphony Orchestra numbers among Russia’s
Read more leading orchestral ensembles. Its many recordings with the great Evgeny Svetlanov are unforgettable. Today Mark Gorenstein leads the orchestra and travels with it to the great concert halls around the globe. Over the past several years the orchestra has produced a number of top-quality live concert recordings that now will be released in the "MDG Live" series.

 be warned, excerpts only January 18, 2014 By I. Duncan (Berkeley, CA) See All My Reviews "This is not a complete recording -- be warned! -- but a filleted version of this exquisite masterpiece, misleadingly billed as a "concert version." It's fluently conducted and quite decently sung, but it can't compete with the best complete versions: Khaikin with the young Vishnevskaya (Bolshoi), on Preiser (a better pressing than the Opera d'Oro and other versions of this performance); the Naxos Bolshoi recording from the late 1930s; or, if you want up-to-date stereo sound, Bychkov with Fucile and Hvorostovsky."
