Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake (highlights) - Fistoulari        (8 of 10 found this review helpful)
  January 11, 2010

Is this the best Scenes from Swan Lake album? Well I also have a Karajan RBCD of the same which I do love and I could think of some phrasing on Karajan that I prefer but the performance is still excellent.
