Notes & Reviews:

One of the 20th century's great interpreters, Evgeny Svetlanov initially trained as a pianist- composer before being appointed principal conductor of the Bolshoi Theatre Symphony Orchestra in 1962 and the USSR State Symphony Orchestra in 1965.The latter post was held for 35 years, a period which saw the ensemble become famed for its unique 'Russian' sound. Scratching the surface of an extraordinary number of recordings made by the conductor, this release is based on various live performances dating from between 1960 and 1983. Svetlanov was particularly renowned for his commitment to the orchestral works of his homeland. In combining Svetlanov's championing of late-Romantic works with a highly individual school of playing, this set offers a unique insight into the musical heritage of Russia.
