Review by Jones12 November 8, 2011 (8 of 11 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
I am new to the SACD format and just purchased a multi-channel amplifier and am very
very impressed with the Russian National Orchestra's latest Rimsky-Korsakov release.

The Russian National Orchestra's performance of these popular Rimsky-Korsakov works is full of vitality.
Conductor Carlo Ponti gives all the works on the album a clear sense of interpretive design and fosters
faultless playing from his ensemble.

Scheherazade benefits from an emotional performance of the solo
violin part by Tatiana Porshneva which imbues the work with a sensitivity and flair not often found in
readings of this famous piece.

Alexei Bruni's incisive playing in the Capriccio Espagnol is
equally impressive by its sheer virtuosity and all the solo instruments get their chance to shine.

An brilliant reading of the rarely recorded Neapolitan Song crowns this impressive release from Pentatone Classics.
