Ernest Ansermet

Ansermet in Russia (CD)

Russian music was always a fundamental part of Ansermet’s vast repertoire. Of course, he spent seven years as conductor with the famous Ballets Russes during a particularly glorious period for the company. But Ansermet knew and loved Russian music quite apart from the Ballets Russes.

This collection brings together Russian repertoire recorded at the very beginning of the 1950s, just before the invention of stereo.
