Catalogue Number: 04M058
Description: Few of you will not know these works, among Suk's most-recorded, and certainly among his most memorable, chock-full of gorgeous melodies and rich and colorful orchestration (the solo violin theme in A Fairy Tale ought to be as well known as the one in Rimsky's Sheherezade) but a budget-price brand-new recording is likely to have you adding these fine new versions to any you may already own. Michael Ludwig (violin), Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra; JoAnn Falletta.
