The Red Poppy & Caucasian Sketches - Anatole Fistoulari


The Red Poppy

Gliere - The Red Poppy (Excerpts) 
Ippolitov-Ivanov - Caucasian Sketches, Op. 10
Anatole Fistoulari conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra
Recorded in England

From Billboard - October 12, 1957: Excellent recording enhances good versions of colorful Russian scores which rely on exotic flavor. "Caucasian Sketches" are not strange to record and "Red Poppy" has been done well before, but present package will show strengths. Attractive cover.
