Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
Dating from the early 1960s, the Fourth is arguably Lyatoshinsky's most compelling symphony, clothing folkloristic musical elements musical elements within an imaginative orchestral framework. Highly assured performances captured in warmly resonant sound.

Boris Lyatoshynsky was the foremost Ukrainian composer of the twentieth century and his five symphonies are the cornerstone of the symphonic music of his country. The Fourth Symphony of 1963 met with immediate acclaim for its imaginative orchestration, while the Fifth Symphony is memorable for its use of Ukrainian folkloric material. This is the third of three discs comprising the complete Lyatoshynsky symphonies.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Carl Baumann believed that the Fourth (1963) would eventually be thought of as the greatest of Liatoshinsky's symphonies. The Fifth, from the mid-1960s, is nicknamed Slavonic; I has a hymn-like theme based on an old Rus song about Ilya Mourometz. II is based on two Bulgarian tunes, and the finale incorporates dance and church music along with a sense of growing unrest.
