4.0 out of 5 stars Rimsky's Fairy-Tale Music March 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nicolas Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), the much-patronized composer of "Sheherazade" (1888) and of the "Capriccio Espagnol" (1887), poured most of his creative juices into opera. He wrote twelve operas, the first, "The Maid of Pskov," in 1868, and the last, "The Golden Cockerel," in 1908, the year of his death. (The première occurred posthumously in 1909.) The stage works contain Rimsky's best music and the suites that he derived from them outshine the works that he wrote strictly for the concert-hall. The mark of Rimsky's operatic achievement is that he had only one genuine successor in Russia - Sergei Prokofiev, of whose music-dramas only "War and Peace" measures up fully to the criteria established by his precursor. A romantic, Rimsky steeped his operatic scores in the lore, musical and narrative, of the Russian folk. Igor Golovchin, who, with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, has recorded the orchestral works of Alexander Glazunov for Naxos, now enters a CD devoted to Rimsky, in a program including the suites from "The Maid of Pskov" (1868-72) and "The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh" (1907) and two other works, the early "Fantasia on Serbian Themes" (1867) and the once-popular "Skazka" ("Fairy-Tale" [1879]). Never forget that Rimsky wrote a treatise on orchestration: Of this subsidiary art, he was an exalted master. Part of the considerable delight in the two suites is the transparent brilliance of the sounds. Often, in the carefully constructed climaxes, the glockenspiel or triangle provides a highlight while trumpets opine over a magical tremolo in the strings; the woodwinds regularly bubble and coo and the percussion add to the pomp and splendor. The Stravinsky of "The Firebird" and of "Petrouchka" leaps like an Athena from the head of the Rimskyan Zeus. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars lifeless performances June 28, 2003
By Russell
Format:Audio CD
I brought this CD for the suite from "The invisible City of Kitezh". I heard the Chandos/Jarvi recording of this suite on the radio and was spellbound by it. However, I couldn't justify the expense of the Chandos performance, since this only comes as a full price 3 CD set. I therefore picked up the Naxos contender instead.
However, right from the start, the invisble city of kitezh fails to excite, as the Jarvi performance does so well. The beautiful shimmering strings at the start in Jarvi's account are almost inaudible in the naxos version, and given that there's not much else going on at this point, the performance seems to fall flat from the start for my liking. Things don't pick up either, and I find the whole performance rather lifeless. However, Jarvi's account on chandos is absolutely spellbinding; It's just a pitty that it's not available as a single disk.
I love Rimsky-Korsakov, but I find the rest of the CD rather boring. The suite from Ivan the terrible is pretty lifeless as well; Again, I've heard much better.
While naxos are putting out some fantastic performances (ie: Bax, Moeran, Harty, Copland, Ives, Holst, etc) there is also a large amount of "ordinary" performances; My opinion is that this CD is one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music February 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rimsky-Korsakov's music on this disc is wonderfully imaginative. "Invisible City" is downright wild. But really bought this for "Fairy Tale" (aka "Skazka"). Personally still prefer the older version by Othmar Maga conducting the Bochum Symphony as a more dramatic interpretation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legend of the Invisible City December 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I got this as a treat to myself and particularly enjoyed the "Wedding Processional". The sleigh bells make this piece particularly appropriate for these wntery months.
