Catalogue Number: 04V005
Reference: ODE 1344-2
Description: Most of you will have one of the handful of previous recordings of the two tone poems. Unfortunately there’s not a word in the notes about the nine-and-a-half minute overture from 1902, whose title is the name of a 14th century Lithuanian monarch. The Sea appears here in its original version, free of accretions and “improvements” inserted by various editors. Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra; Modestas Pitrėnas.
