About

“This Poème de l'extase is something else altogether. … this develops into a thrillingly intense, even intimidating experience. Subtle refinement is scarcely on the agenda, yet the sheer theatrical fervour of this account is hard to resist, and those malignant sneers from muted USSR SO trombones at 8:27 onwards have to heard to be believed (was this particular passage ever more evil-sounding than here?). What a pity the applause was edited out—I was on my feet long before the end!” –Gramophone

Melodiya recordings, stereo 1963/6
