The multi-Grammy winning Elite recording team of Marc Aubort and the late Joanna Nickrenz extract a fantastic recording of the legendary warhorse composition which is a staple of the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Pavel Kogan's repertoire. Recorded at the famous Festival House concert hall in Salzburg, Austria, this performance is slightly faster in pace than many other interpretations which builds a tension that brings new light to the orchestral nuances that Korsakov so carefully crafted. The recording was mastered and cut by Bernie Grundman using Classic's all-tube analog cutting system and pressed on 200-gram vinyl.

Big Disappointment

Reviewer: Darryl Lindberg
It's a mystery how Kogan could induce the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra to produce such a listless performance of one of the absolute barn burners of classical music--and Russian classical music, at that! So don't buy it for the performance.

I wouldn't buy it for the sound, either, as my copy was muffled and dynamically anemic (matches the performance, I guess). I bought this disc because I loved Kogan's take on the Shostakovich 5th with the same orchestra (CR 2001), which featured both a stunning performance and excellent sonics.

Oh well . . . At least the vinyl was flat and generally silent.
