Nothing to do with the opera. This is Ernesto Halffter’s music to Jacques Feyder’s silent film based on Mérimée’s novel.

Bought the oop of Glazunov/Jarvi. So happy.
Stenka Razin is my next-favorite Glazunov after the Seasons. How can you not love such a juicy melodramatic adaptation of such a good tune?

I have ordered the Kabelac symphonies, due early March.

I'm listening to them on Qobuz.

I really like the suite "From the Middle Ages".  Very atmospheric.

Yes, me too. 'The Kremlin' is another favourite.

Good to know, thanks. I have only one disc of Halffter and was not hooked. Maybe this will help me form a positive opinion after all.

Cheers. I have hardly bought anything at all in recent times.
