“..excellent performances of some captivatingly colourful music. (Russian Easter Festival) splendidly exuberant playing from players who naturally have the stuff of the music in their bones…marvellous gravity and resonance. …(Dubinushka) only a trifle, but quite a rare one. Rimsky-Korsakov heard the song during the 1905 “revolution” – both his liberal instincts and his musical invention were fired …scored by the master hand and very effective (The Golden Cockerel) excellently played under Svetlanov (he has a marvellously strangled trumpet for the cock-crow) ”.
