Description: Although this odd release from an unknown label with no catalogue number claims "World Premiere Recording" for the Macbeth overture, you and I both know that it isn't since Records International offered a recording of this on the Italian Inedita label in June of 2007 (no longer available). This recording was made in 2006; that one in 2004. But, if you never got that one, this is equally reasonably priced. Remember the ghostly theme in the slow movement of the Ghost trio? That's the main theme in the Macbeth overture... H. David Meyers (oboe), Soloists of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic; Yuval Waldman (violin).
