How wonderful to have these ravishing recordings - excellent sound despite their age - back in the catalogue at a nice price.

Overtures by Glinka, tone poetry by Liadov, and ballet music from Glazunov. What made this a must-have for this buyer, however, was what might be for some listeners a guilty pleasure:

Schumann's Carnaval (arr. Glazunov)

Glazunov, Rimsky and Tcherepnin collaborated on this orchestration of the great German's piano suite, and though it may sound too Russified to be properly Schumannesque, I loved it from the first hearing many years back. The festive spirit is more pungently captured by the orchestra than by the piano, which will sound forever tame after you give the Preamble a blast.

If not moved by the prospect of the carnaval, don't hesitate the Glinka and Liadov rarities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 25 April 2010
By Laszlo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
What a terrific item. Eloquence Australia should be congratulated wholeheartedly, not only for creating an Ansermet series but for delivering it with a compelling and outstanding programming of works, and in superb, remastered sound.
Some of these recordings are from 1954, which means they are in "pioneer" Stereo, yet everything sounds as recorded yesterday (or better!) You can hear all details of orchestration (important here) and the nuances of the conducting; which is almost perfect.

Some criticize the fact that the Suisse Romande was a second rate orchestra, but that becomes unimportant when the performances and the sound are this magical.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Eloquence Reissue 6 July 2011
By P. H. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Ansermet and his Geneva-based Suisse Romande orchestra do their usual fine job of presenting the music as the composer intended with a minimum of personal style embellishment. A lot of good music, in good sound, for the money. The Glazunov "Seasons" is especially good. You will be glad you purchased this album.
