Product Description & Reviews
No Description Available.Genre: Classical MusicMedia Format: Compact DiskRating: Release Date: 26-JUN-2001 Scheherazade is no longer the ubiquitous presence it used to be on disc and in the concert hall, but given a terrific performance, it can't fail to impress. It gets one here from the Atlanta Symphony and its new music director, Robert Spano. The big brass chords of the Sultan's theme that open the work are as malevolent as you could wish and the seductive, sensuous violin of Cecylia Arzewski in response (depicting Scheherazade) is not only beautifully played, but recorded in proper size and relation to the big orchestra. Spano characterizes each movement or episode beautifully, capturing the rocking waves lapping against Sinbad's boat and the ferocious final shipwreck with dramatic and musical instincts that make this one of the best (and best-recorded) of all Scheherazades. The colorful filler, the Russian Easter Overture, is a winner, too. --Dan Davis

This noted recording of Tchaikovsky's complete ballet-the first ever released in stereo-has been a holiday favorite for over 40 years! And as recently as 1992, the New York Times chose it as their ''Favorite Holiday Recording.'' Renowned ballet conductor Antal Dorati leads the London Symphony Orchestra. Mercury's legendary recordings, made in the 1950s and '60s to exacting engineering standards--many of them mastered using 35mm magnetic film--also captured some of the best performances of the
