Russian Christmas

Russian Christmas
(BBC Music magazine)
If you want something beyond the umpteenth version of “Rudolph,” the best source of holiday music can be found at the newsstand. Every year the classical music monthly BBC Music puts together seasonal offerings of a divergent kind. This year the focus is Russia, with a version of Tchaikovsky’s First Symphony plus two settings of Alexander Ostrovsky’s “The Snow Maiden” (the suite from Rimsky-Korsakov’s more successful opera and excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s abandoned attempt).
