A very enjoyable Scheherazade
This performance of Scheherazade gives me great pleasure. The sound quality is outstanding. The Suisse Romande Orchestra has great power in the loud passages and fine expressiveness in the softer moments. The orchestra lets us hear what a marvelous orchestrator Rimsky-Korsakov was. My only criticism is the solo trumpet lagging behind the beat in a couple of moments during the first movement. On balance, I enthusiastically recommend this version.
