Notes & Reviews:

The First Symphony is notable for the rhythmic interest of the first movement and the lively second movement, which shows the influence of Mendelssohn, with the third movement full of heartfelt romanticism - a fitting contrast to the resplendent final movement.

MusicWeb International, 7th February 2014
The Bolshoi Orchestra, unlike some others, seems not to have been affected adversely by the post-Soviet exodus of players. The string tone remains warm and vibrant; the characterful woodwinds can sound full or delicate, as required. The brasses have, if anything, improved, taming their raw tonal edge while maintaining their impact and brilliance. Discipline is good.
