This wonderful rarity contains two of the least played works by RK. Firstly, it includes the best recording available of RK’s 3rd symphony, a very compelling work that deserves to be better known. Performance by Yondani Butt and a top form
LSO is excellent, very moving and plenty of orchestral brilliance, showing the best of the composer as an orchestrator. The filler is the Symphonic Poem “Fairy Tale” based on the legend of the wizard Kaschchei Smertny. The work is wonderful, very atmospherical and another sample of Rimsky’s mastery in orchestration, perhaps still the best in russian music history. Again, Butt and LSO deliver an excellent reading of this work, that could be taken easily as the reference. This rarity has
to be taken as an essential in RK’s discography.
