Glinka's Kalinka

I find Glinka so magical:

If you don't like Classical Music, you will like Glinka. The opening power of Kamarinskaya is panoramic. I remember an old Olympia disk of Chamber Music that was wonderful. What do you say?

No, it was on Olympia. But I remember the Septet and Sextet. I also really enjoyed an old Naxos release.

I heard that. But Regis is reissuing some Olympia titles, so it may still be the same.

Appears to be the same:


I am sure that is not the cover of the Olympia I had, but, now, the name Pletnev might have been on it,... but, I can't be sure. I will do some digging. If that is the absolute only option, then there are two Olympia covers (possible, maybe probable) to the booklet.


What tired me of 'Classical Music', and, I'll take the Beethoven Overtures set as an example (which I love, dgmw). Whereas someone like Beethoven starts with the dramatic motif, and then can proceed to the typically Classical sounding major-ish music, Glinka, in Kamarinskaya in particular, to me, keeps the mood going,... almost reminding me of Sibelius. Did any of that make sense? ??? I feel like I just put my finger in my eye, haha!! :-\ :P ;D

Not Olympia (and yet interestingly Olympia), but what looks like another release of it:

I'm a really big fan of Glinka. I have that chamber disc, and it really is wonderful. Kamarinskaya also is a wonderful showpiece. The Naxos disc of orchestral works is ok, but i think I'd like dig a little deeper into his works list.
