Notes & Reviews:

Like his Russian colleagues in exile, Glazunov and Rachmaninov, Alexander Grechaninov turned away from what was to become the fashionable modernism in favor of a conservative style that took its bearing from the Russian nationalists. This album premieres two deeply satisfying Grechaninov works. The Missa Oecumenica was composed in the same year as the Fifth Symphony, and is a symphonic mass on a grand scale. Conductor Valeri Polyansky offers great performances in fine Chandos sound.
