About this release

The Jazz Suites with the addition of 2 overtures and a hymn on SACD. Both Suites date from the 1930’s and enjoy a huge popularity. Especially the second Waltz from the first Suite has become widely known through the arrangement by violinist and “Stehgeiger” André Rieu. The Overture on Russian and Kirghiz Folk Themes was written to celebrate the centenary of the incorporation of Kirghizia into Russia. On the same patriotic note is a short hymn to the port on the Black Sea, the Novorossisk chimes. The Ukrainian Orchestra under Theodore Kuchar gives excellent, idiomatic performances.
