Notes & Reviews:

Known to Tchaikovsky as the 'Russian Bach' and to Rachmaninov as 'a master composer [and] a pinnacle of musical Moscow', Sergey Taneyev was one of the most highly regarded and influential musical figures of his time. His unfinished Symphony No. 2, begun while Taneyev was a student at the Moscow Conservatoire, was recognized by his teacher, Tchaikovsky, as a work of considerable promise. It is heard here in Vladimir Blok's edition, first performed in 1977. Taneyev's Symphony No. 4, composed twenty years later, is a large-scale masterpiece considered by many to be his finest orchestral work. Thomas Sanderling's first disc in the Naxos Taneyev series (Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3 / NXS 8570336) was praised by The Guardian for its "strongly characterized performances".
