Robert J Farr
MusicWeb International, March 2012

This is a Naxos Musical Journey with a difference. There are no vistas of mountains, streams or snow-clad slopes and villages with music that often has little recognisable connection with the pictures, either by composer, mood or content. In this instance the pictures are very much related to the music being played. Pictures of toy soldiers in appropriate period uniforms feature prominently as do pictures of paintings of battlefields, all taken from museums.

The orchestral choices are all apt and played with both gusto and brio by the forces of the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra under Ondrej Lenárd. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
