To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an outstanding CD, for both price and quality. Lovers of Rimsky-Korsakov's music, but unfamiliar, as I was, with 'Christmas Eve' and 'Night on Mount Triglav' should not hesitate here. My already overwhelming respect and affection for the creative and orchestral genius of Rimsky-Korsakov has found a new humbling dimension. A revelation. Superb interpretations and excellent recording.
Rimsky-Korsakov is often described as a one-hit wonder: Sheherazade. Maybe the Eastern Overture is also good, but this CD leaves us with the weaker moments of the composer. It's all quite ordinary, conventional and the recording is pretty bland, distant and underwhelming.
