Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a set of recordings of the great Russian conductor Yevgeny Mravinsky. Yevgeny Mravinsky led the Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Leningrad Philharmonic Society for over fifty years. His mighty conductor's will, unflagging discipline and highest demands he placed before himself and his musicians turned the orchestra into one of the best symphony orchestras of the world that was applauded by the most exacting audiences in Moscow, Leningrad, Prague, Vienna, Berlin, London, Milan, Venice, New York and Tokyo. Having reached his artistic maturity, the conductor refused the practice of studio recordings recognizing just the concert performance as a genuine act of the performing process. Yevgeny Mravinsky avoided the monographic aspect in his programmes and freely alternated compositions of different authors, periods and styles. The principle was observed for this set as well. The featured symphonic works of Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Wagner, Bruckner, Lyadov, Debussy, Ravel, Sibelius, Scriabin and Stravinsky were recorded by Yevgeny Mravinsky and the Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Leningrad Philharmonic Society both in studio and at concert in 1949 to 1982.
