Penguin Guide, January 2009

What a good idea to put Arensky’s attractive orchestral Suites on a single CD. Suite 1 in G minor opens with a Russian theme with variations, and Suite No. 2, Silhouettes, the best known, is a suite of character studies. Suite No. 3 is another set of variations, brightly coloured, the Andante theme itself beginning in a romantic, chorale style and ending as a lively Polonaise. The performances are good and enthusiastic…it all emerges quite vividly…A highly enjoyable disc…

"Yablonsky clearly has a soft spot for this music, and the livelier numbers certainly blaze."
