5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked, Superb Interpretation of "Scheherazade" From Ozawa and Wiener Philharmoniker 5 April 2007
By John Kwok - Published on Amazon.com
I haven't seen Seiji Ozawa's splendid recording of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade" with the Wiener Philharmoniker mentioned anywhere as one of the finest recordings of this popular orchestral suite. That's truly a pity, since this recording features an exceptional performance from the Wiener Philharmoniker that's most noteworthy for the lush, warm intonation of the winds, brass and strings. Moreover, Ozawa - who has recorded this work twice before - truly has ample empathy and understanding of Rimsky-Korsakov's score. Indeed, Ozawa conducts as if he was a mesmerizing storyteller, recounting one amazing episode after another via music in this musical homage to the celebrated Arabian Nights tales. Wiener Philharmoniker concertmaster Rainer Honeck is an exceptional soloist, offering lyrical, brilliant playing from his violin, frequently in the context of memorable solos throughout the piece. In his early thirties when this work was recorded, Honeck's playing reminds me most of Joshua Bell's in its lyrical qualities. Along with "Scheherazade" is the little-known Rimsky-Korsakov work "Russian Easter Overture", which is also performed admirably well by the Wiener Philharmoniker too. Anyone interested in acquiring a superb recording of Rimsky-Korsakov's most famous orchestral work will be delighted with this overlooked CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, great sound and making music 19 April 2013

This is very dear recording to me because I had heard the previous with the Boston Symphony. I've particularly appreciated the absolutely beautifull sound and the cleanness of interpretation.
