Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording of the concert devoted to the 150th anniversary of the composer includes some rarely performed compositions that unveil new dimensions of his talent, and can't help but arouse the keenest interest. The compositions were brilliantly performed at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory by the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra conducted by Evgeny Svetlanov.

International Record Review
At his best, Svetlanov was well-nigh unbeatable in Russian repertoire and this superbly shaped and vibrantly dramatic version of Hamlet is a real highlight: there's an incendiary intensity to climaxes but such imaginative playing quieter moments too. The performances throughout this enterprising programme are at a comparable level of inspiration.
