This is the second recording to be released in Decca's newly revived association with the Montreal Symphony under Music Director Kent Nagano. Always a benchmark for supreme audiophile quality this relationship now bears fruit with innovative and unusual repertoire: this recording presents a program of rare and familiar music to celebrate Halloween including Rimsky-Korsakov's technicolor re-orchestration of Mussorgsky's Night on a Bare Mountain and Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice.  The album is also filled with rarities such as Balakirev's tone poem Tamara and Charles Ives's Hallowe'en, the first of his ‘Three Outdoor Scenes' of which Central Park in the Dark is the best-known.
