Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a collection of Sergei Taneyev's best works in the interpretation of Evgeny Svetlanov. Cantata John of Damascus is Taneyev's first composition endowed with artistic maturity (the author himself numbered it Opus 1). Symphony No. 4 in C minor is a masterpiece of Taneyev's instrumental music, where the traditional structure of sonata-symphonic cycle is filled with intense dramatic movement "from the darkness to the light." The collection also features a refined Concert Suite for violin and orchestra and the Symphonic Entr'acte from the opera Oresteia (Temple of Apollo at Delphi). The Concert Suite features Andrey Korsakov, one of the best students of Leonid Kogan.
