    One receives one's money's worth for certain with this disc - both in performance time and in quality of the performances and their surround sound recording. But there is also a mystery. Something seems to have gotten lost in the translation of the original album concept from the Russian.  There's the odd album title, engravings of a sea monster on the front and inside of the note booklet, and even on the beautifully-decorated printed side of the disc. Yes, Rosetti, who lived until 1792, was in fact Bohemian-born, but what is the point of the sea monster and the Mutineer bit?...


    Text of the booklet is available in English, German, and Russian.
