5.0 out of 5 stars Great music at a bargain price. April 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I served in Ukraine in 1992-93. The only real entertainment was the opera, the ballet and the classical orchestra. Admission was amazingly cheap and the quality of the performances was amazingly good. Eastern European classical orchestras do not have the reputation of the best Western European and North American classical orchestras, but they are every bit as good. This album is both excellent quality and a real bargain. I would recommend it for background music while working for anyone who loves classical music.

The recordings are good, some better than others. Excellent for listening to at work. The attribution of the recordings is poor ie: composers not listed, musicians not listed.

This was a great bargain for some very professional sounding classical music. How could you go wrong, and hopefully some financial support to less well known musicians.

Hard to beat for 99 cents. Some of the selections are duplicates in other bargain price mp3 albums. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes the Russian composers.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! So Lively!! April 23, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love it. It's just filled with such Movement and quickness. I can picture the dancing in the Nutcracker scenes! I can picture Peter and The Wolf cartoon as I listen to this. There are so many tracks that bring to mind so many memories and emotions. I am listening to it right now and I'm on track 44, and out of the 44 tracks I only found 1 that I didn't care for. All the rest thus far have been fantastic! Totally recommend this very quick and lively collection of Russian works!!
