The Bolshoi Experience
Highlights from Russian Operas
Soloists, Chorus
and Orchestra of the
Bolshoi Theatre Moscow
conducted by
Alexander Vedernikov

"This co-production of the Bolshoi Theatre (the word translates as "Great") and Pentatone brings a sampling of the typical opera-goers' experience in one of the great world centres of opera. And in exemplary surround sonics instead of the awful sound of Soviet-ear recordings or the so-so sound of many more recent Russian efforts¦.The last selection is one of the most energetic and dramatic versions of the orchestral Polovtsian Dances I've ever heard - making a grand audiophile wrap up to an interesting survey of the Bolshoi Experience. The acoustics of the huge venue are excellent and the 5.0 surround recreates them with much realism." - John Sunier, audiophile audition
