Excellent value
Pork Chop | Lisbon, Portugal | 01/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The audio, numbers, and performances of very good,
and the value outstanding, as you get almost everything
that Borodin, the composer, created in his career
on this dual release - more complete than the previous
DECCA version, as this one is expanded, of course.

I would recommend this release be coupled with the
other composers comprising the Magificient Five of Russia,
namely the Balakirev Vols 1 and 2 on Naxos, (very moody)
Cesar Cui (very nicely done) on Naxos, Mikhail Glinka conducted
by Vassily Sinaisky (amazing) and finally, Glazunov's
number with The Seasons and Violin Concerto.

In this way, the precursor of Igor Stravinsky's compositions
can be better understood, from the above Russian creators
of timeless music."
