Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
Rubinstein's early studies were in Berlin, which had a profound influence on his music. He adopted an early-romantic Germanic style that is more Schumann and Mendelssohn than Balakirev and Mussorgsky. But this Fifth is Rubinstein's most Russian sounding symphony; you'll be thinking Tchaikovsky from the opening measures. ... read more ...

Anton Rubinstein was one of the towering figures of nineteenth-century music, a great piano virtuoso, conductor and influential teacher. The fifth of his six Symphonies is thoroughly Russian in its melodies, and is often compared to his student Tchaikovsky's First Symphony. The overture to Rubinstein's first opera Dmitry Donsky is based on a similarly national Russian theme, while Faust, written in Leipzig in 1854, is the sole surviving movement of an abandoned Faust symphony. Rubinstein's Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 can be heard on Naxos 8.555590 and 8.555979.
