Four of Russia’s ‘Mighty Handful’ of composers combine forces in a programme bookended by music from epic blockbuster operas. Both were later ‘revised’ by Rimsky, whose colourful Overture on ThreeRussian Themes epitomizes the St Petersburg nationalist style, while Cui’s sparkling overture has nothing to do with pirates but prefaces a charming domestic comedy.
