Rimsky-Korsakov was not only a masterly composer of great operas and eloquently powerful symphonies but a genius when it came to the smaller forms, and ample proof is provided by this delightful compilation on the Decca label. The fairytale, programmatic music of the Christmas Eve Suite conjures up a fantastic world where the stars and planets dance and play above a snowy landscape until the witches' sabbath begins and Vakula appears on his satanic warhorse. Brimming over with a wealth of highly varied Slavonic dance rhythms, genial instrumentation, and delightful melodies, this Suite offers nothing but pleasure the wholeyear through.The musical picture Sadko tells the story of a seafaring hero who is obliged to entertain Neptune at his court with music. Dancing water-spirits evoke a terrible storm from which Sadko only manages to escape with his life thanks to Saint Nicholas.Further attractions are to be found on the B side, namely the pre-revolutionary march Dubinushka ("The little oak stick"), and of course the immensely popular Flight of the Bumble-Bee which is sheer magic in this full orchestral version.If by now your mouth is watering for a taste of these Russian delicacies, just help yourself!." Recording: November 1956 at Victoria Hall, Geneva by James Brown / Production: James Walker." Rimsky-Korsakov: "Christmas Eve" (Suite), "Sadko", "The Flight of the Bumble bee", "Dubinushka" - Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Ernest Ansermet." standard sleeve
