A rare masterpiece. Expansive and dramatic verse contrasting excitingly with the powerful rhythms of the orchestra, notable for dramatic outbursts from the timpani and trumpets.

“This is a worthy competitor to the Harnoncourt. A true Russian choir with roof-rattling basses, honeyed tenors, and female voices with the sweetness and edge of a fruit brandy” – American Record Guide
