Description: The composer's last opera (1891) is a medieval kinghts-and-ladies work which has been under-recorded and generally slighted. But it's got a good bit of orchestral color even if it's not a forgotten masterpiece. 2 CDs. No libretto. Tamara Sorokina (soprano), Vladimir Atlantov (tenor), Evgeny Nesterenko (bass), Yuri Mazurok (baritone), Bolshoi Theatre Chorus and Orchestra; Mark Ermler.
