This charming ballet score is an excellent introduction to this russian composer's music. He was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, so you know that his orchestration will be colorful, and his style is very much from the russian tradition of Tchaikovsky. Each season is divided into scenes who's dancing characters represent
frost, ice and snow for winter, Zephyr, birds and flowers for spring, cornflowers, poppies and fauns for summer and falling leaves and stars glittering in the heavens for autumn, so the ballet music is very colorful and descriptive.
