Notes & Reviews:

Borodin's Symphony No. 1, epic in scope and Russian by nature, bears the genuine symphonism of the development of the major thematic grain. It took a long time for him to write Symphony No. 2, whose premiere performance took place in 1877. He began to work on the Third Symphony in Winter 1883, and the work continued up to the end of his life. He often played music of the Symphony for his friends, but he didn't write it down and unfortunately it remained unfinished. Now we can listen to it, thanks to A. Glazunov, who remembered the author's performing of the first movement of the Symphony and used Borodin's Scherzo, intended initially for a Quartet, for the second movement according to Borodin's will.
