Don Quixote Op. 87
Ivan the Terrible, Op. 79
Russian State Symphony Orchestra
The lasts in Delos’ Russian Disc recordings of seldom-heard Russian music, this release offers Don Quixote and Ivan IV, his two “symphonic pictures” of memorable characters, in performances that have long been ranked as being the best available. Many of Rubinstein’s contemporaries considered these unique works to be among the finest music he wrote.
