CD Reviews

Nice collection of songs of the Mighty Five et al
Jody Palm | Greeneville, TN United States | 05/30/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This CD sounds like a recording of a graduate recital and I can't take too much of Linn's voice, but she certainly should get an "A" for programming this collection.There are songs of the Mighty Five Russian composers: Borodin, Cui, Balakirev, Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, and well as others who were their contemporaries or were influenced by them. I particularly like the inclusion of some songs I don't often hear, like the Complaint of the Bride, and From My Tears, along side the chestnuts like None, but the Lonely Heart, Hopek, The Sea Queen, and others.Worth it for the recordings of the songs not often heard. For the chestnuts, there are better recordings."
