Borodin, Rimski Korsakoff – Symphony No.2 In B Minor, Cappricio, Espagnole, Tsar Saltan (1959) {Analogue Productions; Remastered, Ltd, 200g; 24-96} + 16-44

This is a happy marriage between conductor and orchestra in the second symphony by Borodin. The orchestra was bristling with talent such as Gervase de Peyer on clarinet and Barry Tuckwell on horn and Hugh Maguire the leader of the London Symphony Orchestra until 59′ on Violin. The sound is very direct but the orchestra stands up very well to this. Martinon’s interpretation is refreshing and very up-beat.
