Notes & Reviews:

A precocious pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov combined national inspiration with masterful compositional technique. Dating from the earlier part of his career, as do all the works on this recording, the two 'Serenades' demonstrate his facility for handling simple melodic material. The two 'Overtures' based on popular Greek themes reflect the contemporary fascination in Russian music for the exoticism of the music of neighbouring countries.

Film Music: The Neglected Art
I found both recordings to be more than acceptable. While the Svetlanov recording has a bright sound, the Ziva benefits with a newer digital technology giving it a fuller feeling. Both Ziva and Svetlanov have studied and understand this composition equally well. The selection process would come down to cost and the desire for a six CD set that includes his symphonies or a single CD that is part of a nineteen CD collection from Naxos. Since I have and enjoy both I don't have to choose. If I had to choose I would lean toward the Naxos recording as it offers his Triumphal March, two Serenades, and his ballet work Chopinana (Les Sylphides) an orchestral compilation of Chopin's material.
