"This is masterly on almost every count, musical and visual...Front stage, as it were, are some of the best of the current generation of Russian singers, not a dud among them... Gergiev is another of the recording's heroes. Seldom, if ever...has the score sounded so hauntingly beautiful and apt for this huge panorama...Don't miss this riveting experience." - Gramophone Opera Good CD Guid
