Notes & Reviews:
The prolific composer Anton Rubinstein's Second Symphony, known as the "Ocean" Symphony, grew and grew as he revised it. The first version was completed in 1851 and consisted of four movements. The final version with seven movements represent the Seven Seas. This simple scenario provided Rubinstein with plenty of opportunities for the most graphic musical scene painting which he accomplished with great skill in terms of mood and atmosphere, as well as melody and orchestration.
