The Tsar's Bride (Russian: Царская невеста, Tsarskaya nevesta) is an opera in four acts by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, the composer's tenth opera. The libretto, by Il’ya Tyumenev, is based on the drama of the same name by Lev Mey. Mey's play was first suggested to the composer as an opera subject in 1868 by Mily Balakirev. (Alexander Borodin, too, once toyed with the idea.) However, the opera was not composed until thirty years later, in 1898. The first performance of the opera took place in 1899 at the Moscow theater of the Private Opera of S.I. Mamontov. Rimsky-Korsakov himself said of the opera that he intended it as a reaction against the ideas of Richard Wagner, and to be in the style of "cantilena par excellence". The Tsar's Bride is a repertory opera in Russia, although it is not part of the standard operatic repertoire in the West.

Opera lies at the heart of Rimsky-Korsakov’s colourful idiom, but performances are few and far between; this realisation of his penultimate and grandest stage work is a very rare and special experience. Kitezh is known as ‘the Russian Parsifal’, which encapsulates its mystical flavour and steady unfolding of a legend of redemption. A largely Russian cast (headed by the stunning Svetlana Ignatovich) and production team works within a set that moves from opulent naturalistic scenery to some startling theatrical coups worthy of Rimsky’s underrated dramatic instincts.

This two-CD set contains excellent recordings of Rimsky-Korsakov's best orchestral works (aside from Scheherazade, which they assume you already have) in demonstration-quality digital sound. The Cappricio Espagnole is probably the best recording I've ever heard of this work, with perfect tempos and a colorful orchestral pallette. The sound quality here is really outstanding.

Nickolai Rimsky-Korsakov was a master orchestrator who became especially known for his colorful use of woodwinds and brass, perhaps as a result of his conducting the Russian Navy Band in his early days. He put this talent to excellent use in his "Capriccio Espagnol," which is based on Spanish folk tunes, according to the composer. There are five sections: Alborada, Variazioni, Alborada (repeated with changed orchestration in a different key), Scena e canto gitano (gypsy street song), leading into Fandango asturiano. There is a brief concluding reference to the Alborada in the coda. Rimsky-Korsakov was likely inspired to compose this orchestral piece by Tchaikovsky's similar "Capriccio Italien."

For the first century of its history, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam had only four principal conductors, and it was the second and fourth, Willem Mengelberg and Bernard Haitink, who enjoyed a truly international reputation. Previous issues on Eloquence from Haydn to Debussy have shed light on the recordings made with the Concertgebouw by the third of its directors, Eduard van Beinum. With him the orchestra made many recordings for Decca which are being restored to the catalogue and uncovering the particular interpretative gifts identified by Classical Source: ‘With Van Beinum there is no artifice, just wholesome regard for the music. His is an intelligent approach to the music he plays through scrupulous attention to detail.’

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov was a member of the young Russian school formed by The Mighty Handful along with Balakirev, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky, and Alexander Borodin. Although his songs are not very frequently performed, his songs with piano accompaniment or, as the master himself termed them, the Romances, are a substantial element of his overall oeuvre. Rimsky-Korsakovs song artistry is first and foremost a musical one. In the miniaturistic formats of his romances he fundamentally endeavored to interrelate the poetic statement and vocal interpretation.
