Borodin: Symphony No. 1; Vasily Kalinnikov: Symphony No. 1 / Evgeni Svetlanov, USSR Symphony Orchestra

Notes & Reviews:

Svetlanov's performance of the Borodin is a splendidly energetic yet sensitive reading of a charming and most accomplished work by a talented composer who died tragically young ... He is rewarded with beautiful lyrical playing in the Andante but also in the graceful, fresh lines of the opening movement. It is a work that should be better known.

Kalinnikov had a real gift for the tenderly lilting as Andante commodamente goes to prove, especially with the Steppe-longing aspirations of the finale - if you like Borodin then it is a dead cert that this lovely symphony - will appeal.
