Notes & Reviews:

"By 1909 the storm clouds of revolution had already begun to gather. Too soon, the Russia that Alexander Grechaninoff knew and loved would disappear forever. In the calm before that fateful storm, the composer produced his Second Symphony...with their refined brass, richly expressive solo winds, and resplendent strings, Polyansky's Russian state Symphony is by far the best orchestra to essay this music so far..." -Godell, ARG
