Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade - Reiner        (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
  April 12, 2008

Fritz Reiner leads the Chicago Symphony in what is considered by many to be one of the definitive interpretations of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. The disc also features Stravinsky's Song of the Nightingale. This is a recording that has gathered a lot of favor over the years and I decided I would ... more

I have always had a soft spot for the music of Claude Debussy. I was particularly excited to see that this disc contained the remarkable "Petite Suite", arranged by Henri Busser. Just listen to the flute in "En Bateau"! I have always loved this work and simply had to have it on SA-CD. I was not ... more
