Notes & Reviews:

Mily Alexeyevich Balakirev (1837 - 1910) was an outstanding Russian musician, pianist, conductor, and composer. Some of the most remarkable events in Russian music culture of the second half of the 19th century are linked with his name. Balakirev' s compositions for symphony orchestra, in which the musical and aesthetic principles inherited from Mikhail Glinka and Alexander Dargomyzhsky found their development, take a central place in his creative work. This program brings together seven symphonic works in chronological order, all performed by the outstanding Evgeny Svetlanov and the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra.

Balakirev:

Suite for orchestra

Overture on three Russian Themes

King Lear - incidental music

Overture on a Spanish March Theme

Symphonic Poem ‘Russia’

In Czechia - Symphonic Poem

Symphonic Poem ‘Tamara’

USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra, Evgeny Svetlanov

Sunday Times, 18th March 2012
These recordings have a heartwarming vividness, an often biting immediacy, a lovely stylishness. The nationalist colouring is rich, the orientalism of the masterly symphonic poem Tamara, inspired by Lermontov, evocative...The music for King Lear...is thumping stuff.
