Notes & Reviews:

These new recordings of the complete concertos by Alexander Glazunov, with outstanding soloists and the world famous Russian National Orchestra conducted by Glazunov champion and specialist José Serebrier, were made in Moscow in April 2010 and come as an important addition to the symphony cycle Serebrier has recently finished with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Concertos for Violin, Cello, Piano & Saxophone are complemented with various short works with orchestral accompaniment. Featured instrumental soloists include Rachel Barton Pine (violin), Wen-Sinn Yang (cello), Alexander Romanovsky (piano), Marc Chisson (saxophone), and Alexev Serov (horn). "The bells toll to welcome a great new live recording from Moscow" - Gramophone, on 2564680255

"This set is a godsend...how many times do we hear the two piano concertos or the one for saxophone, let alone the Concerto Ballata for cello or the miniatures he wrote for violin, cello and horn?...True, Glazunov's style did not change markedly with the years, but he knew precisely how to harness instruments' individual expressive qualities." -The Telegraph

“There's little doubt that both Serebrier and his soloists, supported by warmly idiomatic playing from the Russian National Orchestra and a beautifully clear recording, make a highly persuasive case for the reappraisal of these works.” -BBC Music Magazine

"This goes straight to the top of the recommended versions of the concertos. I cannot imagine it being surpassed, so strong and sympathetic are these performances and recordings." -MusicWeb-International

"Certainly Rachel Burton Pine was an inspired choice for the Violin Concerto, as any one familiar with her Brahms and Beethoven concertos might imagine. Her penchant for lavishing attention on the melodic line even unto indulgence is tailor-made for the Glazounov - simply one swooning melody after another - her dusky tone and soulful embrace coupled with her consummate mastery of phrasing and tonal shading manage to hold the listener's attention... The music is the main thing, and this convenient coming together of Glazounov's four concertos (plus a few extras) in such exemplary performances will be a welcome addition to your Russian music shelf." -American Record Guide
