Penguin Guide, January 2009

This Naxos version is played elegantly and affectionately, and the Moscow upper strings are full and warm as recorded. It does not lack life. But in seeking atmosphere, the playing creates a less than vibrant effect, although this is partly caused by Alexander Anissimov’s tendency to luxuriant tempi.

, December 1996

"...variety is the spice of a geographically fidgety scenario with all musical opportunites skilfully taken; and conductor Alexander Anissimov looks for lively phrasing at every turn in another Naxos thoroughbred."

American Record Guide, October 1996

"Annissimov positively luxuriates in this terms of both sound and performance this is the Raymonda to have."
