Synopsis

Album Description
Glazunov's wonderfully atmospheric The Seasons ballet joins other Russian compositions by Liadov and Glinka, as well as the colourful orchestral arrangement by Glazunov and others of Schumann's Carnaval - in stunning recordings by Ernest Ansermet as part of the Decca Ansermet Legacy on Eloquence. In addition to the Glazunov and Glazunov-by-arrangement Ansermet recordings, this generous 2-CD set offers all the Glinka and Liadov recordings in the Decca Ansermet catalogue. The Changs Populairs Russes make their first appearance on CD and both Baba Yaga and Kikimora have their piquant endings delightfully realised by Ansermet and his Suisse Romande Orchestra.

CD Reviews

Outstanding
L. Ackerman | Ashburn, VA (USA) | 04/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a terrific item. Eloquence Australia should be congratulated wholeheartedly, not only for creating an Ansermet series but for delivering it with a compelling and outstanding programming of works, and in superb, remastered sound.
Some of these recordings are from 1954, which means they are in "pioneer" Stereo, yet everything sounds as recorded yesterday (or better!) You can hear all details of orchestration (important here) and the nuances of the conducting; which is almost perfect.

Some criticize the fact that the Suisse Romande was a second rate orchestra, but that becomes unimportant when the performances and the sound are this magical."
