Russian orchestral works

  • 1812
  • Islamey
  • Prince Igor, Polovtsian Dances
  • In the Steppes of Central Asia
  • Ruslan and Lyudmila, Overture

This programme of popular Russian pieces gives us an opportunity to assess the qualities of this latest overnight success in the conducting world. The young Finnish conductor certainly gives a weighty feel to 1812, helped by thunder (rather than cannon) noises to left and right, though the other items seem a bit rushed. Compact Disc sound quality is adequately balanced without being outstanding, and some orchestral detail is obscured.'
