Robert Benson, July 2017

These are splendid, exciting performances of Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain given here in its original extended version which will surprise those familiar only with the usual version. Vladislav Sulimsky is the powerful, sensitive soloist in Songs and Dances of Death. Kitayenko is a specialist in music of Prokofiev and has already recorded all of the concertos for piano and violin as well as the symphonies. © 2017 Read complete review

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, May 2017

Once more, Dmitri Kitayenko is entirely in his element, when it comes to colours and moods in Russian music. Using the original version of Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain he releases tremendous orchestral forces, so that we feel the earth tremble and hear the dead moan. There is also one no less exciting performance of Songs and Dances of Death on this disc, followed by a very evocative version of Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky. Great singing from the soloists and from the choir! © 2017 Pizzicato
