Glinka: Orchestral Dances 'Kamarinskaya' (CD)

Current Stock:
Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra

“almost 80 minutes of Russian-sourced dance music by Glinka and all in vivacious, colourful and spatially well-upholstered recordings. Ballet recordings conducted by Ermler are already well known. Here we are treated to the pointedly delicate, airily danceable and charming music from Ruslan, the Paganini-style bel canto and chuckle of the Dance for violin and orchestra.. (while) Demchenko is a gracious conductor creating space for these Bellinian confections drizzled over with a Russian accent” (Rob Barnett, MusicWeb) “Kamarinskaya, another hugely influential work (Tchaikovsky wrote that the ‘Russian symphonic school is all in Kamarinskaya, just as the whole oak is contained in the acorn’)” (James Murray)
