I haven't heard Nikotina yet, but I have heard his other ballet-pantomime Signorina Gioventu which was an absolutely stunning discovery of mine about a month ago:



All the adjectives you used to describe Nikotina could easily be used to describe Signorina Gioventu; this is enormously colorful, inventive, tuneful, and engrossing music. I loved every minute of it! I thought it was more melodically distinctive than, say, his tone poems, much as I enjoy those.

Both Nikotina and Signorina Gioventu are $2.49  for lossless downloads on Qobuz.  I usually spend more on a cup of coffee.

Great value!

I opted for the more expensive (still under £4.00 per disc) higher-res downloads and they sound as good as I have ever heard these recordings.
