Gliere: Symphony no 3 "Ilya Murometz" / Botstein, London SO

Album Summary

>Glière, Reinhold : Symphony no 3 in B minor ("Il'ya Muromets"), Op. 42
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Combining Russian nationalistic tradition with hints of late Romanticism, mainly Richard Strauss, Reinhold Morizevich Gliere created his most ambitious work centered around the subject of Il'ya Murometz, a central figure of the old Russian heroic chants. Episodes from the legend of Il'ya are recounted in detail in the preface to Gliere's score and form the basis for each of the four movements.
