Reviews

If artistry were all
There are no complaints regarding Svetlanov's approach to Glazunov. In this reviewer's humble opinion, Svetlanov's view of the composer is supreme. However, there is a lot to be said about the quality of the recordings. At times, the string sections are so recessive, they seem to have been recorded in another studio. I never heard the Melodiya releases, so I cannot comment whether this current version is a distinct improvement. Since this set (and the other two) appear to be a labor of love sponsored by the conductor's daughter, it is difficult to know whether these recording have been carefully remastered. The recording dates range from the 60s to the 90s, so a difference in recording and orchestral performance is inevitable. The notes are practically non-existent. Nevertheless, if you love Svetlanov's Glazunov, this set and the other two are musts.
