Total Playing Time 1:07:25

These Russian bon-bons are very well played and quite rare. Mikhail Pletnev . . . deserves tremendous credit for such a varied program . . . the orchestral contributions and digital sound are both excellent, with a pleasingly wide dynamic range in both playing and audio . . . [Rimsky-Korsakov / "The golden cockerel"]: Brass playing is bright but never piercing, while the winds strike me as very pleasing . . . as a way of tying all three composers together it makes great programming, and the whole disc is a delight.
