About

“An eminently recommendable survey of Glinka’s orchestral output ... playing of the USSR Symphony is expert and idiomatic” - Penguin Guide

“firm and lively as one would expect from Svetlanov and a Russian orchestra very much on home ground. The recordings do full justice to Glinka's beautiful scoring.  An enjoyable record, not to by missed by lovers of Russian music.”
- Gramophone

“all done with tremendous character and verve: the Waltz-Fantasie, written for one of the many young ladies who turned the composer's head , is unfurled with just the right amount of insouciance and lashings of charm.” - MusicWeb International

1963 & 1990 recordings

Duration: 75:20
