Stravinsky: The Firebird; Scriabin: Prometheus / Gergiev.
Stravinsky's ever popular Firebird suite, heads this all Russian line-up, with the Kirov Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev. GMN artist Alexander Toradze then takes the bull by the horns with the hugely demanding piano role in Scriabin's Prometheus, bringing this wonderful CD to a world-shattering climax.

Moussorgsky: Boris Godounov / Gergiev, Kirov Opera.
Two quite different versions of Mussorgsky's masterpiece for the price of one immediately mark this set out as something special. And two Boris's is exactly what you get: Nicholai Putilin and Vladimir Vaneev take the lead in, respectively, the 1869 and the radically re-composed 1872 versions which amount to a pair of operas barely open to comparison. Valery Gergiev directs the forces of the Kirov Opera in his customary thrilling manner, driving the action ever forwards. A marvellous enterprise from the world's most sought-after conductor.

Tchaikovsky: The Sleeping Beauty / Gergiev, Kirov Orchestra.
Rounding off this feast of Russian music is one of the world's most popular ballets, Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty, performed by Gergiev and the Kirov Theater Orchestra. A must for any record collection.
