Russian music was always a fundamental part of Ansermet’s vast repertoire. Of course, he spent seven years as conductor with the famous Ballets Russes during a particularly glorious period for the company. This collection brings together recordings with both ‘his’ Suisse Romande Orchestra as well as the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra of music by Borodin, Glinka, Mussorgsky and Prokofiev, all of them on Decca CD for the first time.
