Description
Sir Eugene Goossens excelled in exotic, late-Romantic music, and these mid-1950s, late-career performances recorded in London's Kingsway Hall are a riot of orchestral color. They include the Russian Easter Festival Overture, op. 36, by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov; Symphony no. 4, op. 54 ("Poem of Ecstasy") by Alexander Scriabin; Oriental Fantasy, op. 18 ("Islamey") by Mily Balakirev (orchestrated by Alfredo Casella); and Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky (orchestrated by Maurice Ravel).

"Astonishing recordings…. The Scriabin has a wonderfully sustained plastic pulse and the brass playing is nothing short of possessed…. Goossens gives [Islamey] a groaningly barbaric performance with the Rimskian frenzy still in evidence from earlier in the session. Goossens was not going to permit anything gentlemanly or 1950s-staid from the Philharmonia…. This generous collection shows us Goossens in repertoire well suited to his prodigious and eloquent imagination."—MusicWeb International
