Even with 15 other versions of Rimsky's masterpiece of orchestral virtuosity to choose from — some in the top flight — this was recognized from the first as one of the most rewarding, thanks largely to Krebbers's exceptionally sweet, gently appealing and bewitching personification of the story - spinning Scheherazade and to Kondrashin's skill in pacing and shaping movements as a whole, relating the diverse tempos and building up tension and dynamics by careful control so as to create climaxes of thrilling intensity and power. the 'shipwreck' finale, in particular, was overwhelming; and this was achieved without resorting to the ultra - fast tempos adopted by some conductors to whip up excitement. The Concertgebouw's crisp, sonorous and sensitive playing (full marks both to the splendid strings and to the wind soloists) was caught with the utmost fidelity; but the Compact Disc's total exclusion even of minimal extraneous background now marks a still further improvement, as can be judged by the dead silence against which Scheherazade's pleadings are heard. The final coda is ravishingly beautiful.

Review by Lionel Salter, Gramophone [3/1983]

Of the famous conductors who carry the venerable Russian tradition, Yevgeny Mravinsky has largely eclipsed the work of his contemporaries, including that of conductor Kiril Kondrashin. While Mravinsky remained inside the Soviet Union and in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) for most of his life, Kondrashin was one of the first prominent Russian conductors to travel outside of the country, appearing across the globe and guest conducting as far as even the United States. This album features his outstanding work with the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam. In accordance with his legacy of creating a highly personal sound no matter where he traveled, this top-notch Dutch orchestra is, under Kondrashin's leadership, transformed into a versatile Russian powerhouse, complete with gritty string playing and the sounds of lusciously dirty brass. His evocation of the exotic, bright, colors in Rimsky-Korsakov's brilliant orchestration, combined with blistering energy, help make Kondrashin's Scheherazade one of the most exciting ever recorded. Especially crucial to this somewhat monothematic work is pacing, and Kondrashin does not disappoint here either: he gives the performance an organic, natural feel. The poignant violin solos are played with genuine depth and beautiful sound, and the versatile Concertgebouw woodwinds add to the performance's virtuosity.
