RIMSKY-KORSAKOV

Scenes from The Invisible City of Kitezh, Sheherazade

St PetersburgPhilharmonic Orchestra / Yuri Temirkanov

Although he was counted amongst Mily Balakirev's 'Mighty Handful' (which dedicated itself to pursuing a more purely Russian art music, as opposed to the Austro-German musical dominance of the era), both works on this recording show how Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was able to draw influences from beyond Russia into his own unique compositional approach: the scenes from his opera 'The Invisible City of Kitezh' take on a dramatic, Wagnerian influence, whilst 'Sheherazade' is suffused with orientalism as it conjures images from the Thousand and One Nights.

The St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra under Yuri Temirkanov bring their natural insight with this repertoire to the fore in these live performances, continuing their series of acclaimed releases with Signum: “Yuri Temirkanov’s mature and considered performance wears its own character with pride, rather than complying with any perfectionist norm. The reading sounds Russian: dark and edgy…" The SundayTimes (on their performance of Verdi's Requiem, SIGCD184)
