Russian Easter Overture

Post by david johnson » Sun Apr 04, 2021 2:33 am

It's Easter Sunday! This is certainly a day to enjoy Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Overture. That was the first piece of classical music I really got into. We rehearsed a transcription of it in school band and I became very interested. I soon purchased the Ansermet/OSR recording of it on London records. That one has remained a constant enjoyment for me. My favorite is Barenboim/CSO. I've heard so many I can't recall them all. May the Almighty bless us all on this Easter.

Happy Easter to you too, David!

Of course, I grew up with Ormandy's recording, and here it is, along with his Scheherezade etc:
