Rimsky Korsakov:

Scheherazade, Op. 35

Clio Gould (violin)

Russian Easter Festival Overture, Op. 36


Two of the greatest orchestral showpieces in the repertoire – Rimsky’s superbly scored and dramatic orchestral suite based on stories from The Arabian Nights, and his colourful depiction of the Russian Orthodox Easter festival, combining both traditional tunes with liturgical chant.

Charles Dutoit is one of the greatest exponents of this repertoire, and together with his new orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, delivers performances of great passion and exhilaration.

The first of a series of recordings from Dutoit and the RPO to be released by ONYX.

“[Clio Gould] offers a ravishing account of the solo violin narrative thread linking the different episodes in the music. Her playing has a fragile beauty...the splendid performance of the Easter Festival Overture conjures up a heady atmosphere of bells and swirling incense. The playing is most refined...making one marvel again at Rimsky's colourful orchestration.” International Record Review, January 2011

Dubinushka Op. 62

Capriccio espagnol, Op. 34


Rimsky-Korsakov’s colourful Capriccio espagnol reflects a Russian fascination with distant lands, evoking sunny climes and exotic dancing in one of the composer’s most popular and uplifting scores. Steeped in the cultural nationalism of the ‘Mighty Handful’, the Overtures are linked to deeply Russian themes and tales, portraying dramatic life amongst the Tsars with brilliant orchestration and inspired use of folk or liturgical melodies. This release follows the multi-GRAMMY®-nominated and Emmy Award-winning Seattle Symphony ‘spectacular’ (MusicWeb International) recording of Scheherazade (8572693).

“the Seattle Symphony's performances for Gerard Schwarz don't just sparkle, as you would expect at this kind of super-charged Amercian technical level. Their brilliant response is also strongly characterised at every point: Capriccio espagnol here has a dark and spicy pungency that makes it something more than just a pretty Spanish postcard...It's genuinely difficult to imagine better performances. This is a delicious orchestral feast.” Classic FM Magazine, December 2011 *****

Rimsky Korsakov:

Russian Easter Festival Overture, Op. 36


Booklet: German, English, French

Single release of the 60th anniversary-box.

Kyrill Kondrashin and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks: what had been planned as a happy relationship between the significant representative of the Russian conducting school and the first class Munich ensemble ended tragically with the sudden death of the conductor before he could assume the position of Chief Conductor of the orchestra. All the more significant is thus this sound document. The live recording made at concerts in Munich’s Herkulessaal comprises an exciting program that juxtaposes two late romantic works from different symphonic cultures: Rimsky Korsakov’s “Russian Easter” Overture and César Franck’s only symphony, in D minor.

One of the few testimonies to the collaboration between Kyrill Kondrashin and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

An appealing juxtaposition of a Russian and a French work.

Directed by Brian Large.

Being the typically “Berliner” events they are, the annual summer concerts of the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Berlin Waldbühne far surpass the usual in open-air shows and are generally sold out months in advance. A traditional part of these concerts involves the early arrival of the guests who, laden with the requisite picnic paraphernalia, take their seats with a view to enjoying the hours until “their” Philharmonic gala is ready to begin. While there is little likelihood of finding the majority of these concert-goers at a “regular” performance of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the unique atmosphere of the Waldbühne – one of the most attractive amphitheatres in Europe – is irresistibly appealing and has long been the Mecca of many classical music fans.

The world-famous conductor, Seiji Ozawa, joined the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Waldbühne for the “Russian Night”, which naturally focused on music by great Russian composers. The outstanding Overture from Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Symphony, whose battle noise and canon fire are reminiscent of the Russian victory over the Napoleonic invaders, was just one of the items on the programme. With an orchestra as fabulous as the Berliner Philharmoniker plus a conductor as passionate as Seiji Ozawa, the success of the concert was a foregone conclusion.

Booklet Notes:Tracklisting in English, French, German.

Rozhdestvensky was the first Russian conductor to be appointed head of major Western orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra 1978-81 and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra from 1981.

These London recordings from 1978 are an illustration of his work at that time.

A close friend of Shostakovich, he was his favoured interpreter and championed his works. Considered a great interpreter of Russian orchestral music, the beauty of these recordings is no surprise.

"The Soviet conductor…brought to the music an easy command and a dramatic sensibility." The New York Times

"Gennady Rozhdestvensky, one of Russia's true masters of the baton…His engagement of the orchestra is equally masterful. With his subtle hands and explicit wand, he draws each player into the focus of his interpretive intent." The Globe and Mail

"One of the great eccentrics of the podium." The Guardian
