"This CD is valuable for the person, like me, who wanted to get a cheap CD with some of the great Russian classics that you don't find on the typical best-of Russian classical music album. It features a fairly good recording of Gliere's Russian Sailor's Dance and one of the few available recordings of Glinka's Kamarinskaya and Overture to A Life for The Tsar. Both of these are good pieces, and are played acceptably well on this album, but that's where the good stops. It will cost extra money to buy other albums that have good recordings of Russlan and Ludmilla (my 2nd favorite overture of all time) and the Russian Easter Overture, but it's worth the money. Unless you really don't care about the insufficiencies of this fledgling (and small) orchestra, do not buy this album."
