Notes & Reviews:

It is difficult to overestimate the role that Alexander Glazunov, one of the most prominent Russian composers, played in the world music culture. His eight symphonies became his eminent contribution to the development of Russian symphonism. Continuing the traditions of his great predecessors, Glazunov's sublime and monumental symphonic canvases unfold slowly, amazing us with the clarity of their musical language. Gennady Rozhdestvensky (b. 1931) is one of the outstanding conductors of the 20th century, and also a pianist, composer, and researcher. In his enormous repertoire, has performed and recorded all the symphonies by Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky.
