HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Columbia) Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov – Schherazade (Bernstein)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this gem
Many do not like Bernstein because of the dramatization he placed in the NYPO recordings. For a piece such as this, that drama brings out the real story behind the orchestration – Scheherezade entertaining her master, and thus saving her life, with wonderful stories. This recording from a few years ago is very good, if a little fast in Lenny’s interpretation. Wonderful music. Unfortunately there is a little “technical” error in the performance of the 4th pmovement. Do you hear it? Can you guess it? Keyword is: Cymbals at 7:20
