About this Recording

RUBINSTEIN, A.: Symphony No. 6 / Don Quixote (Philharmonia Hungarica, G. Varga, Slovak Philharmonic, Halász)

Few Russian musicians in the second half of the nineteenth century could match the eminence of Anton Rubinstein. As a piano virtuoso he was internationally admired, as a progressive educator he had profound influence, and as a composer he was both significant and successful. The Symphony No 6 in A minor, Op 111 was his last symphony, composed in 1886, and fully revealing those qualities of grace and energy, as well as clever scoring, that make his works so appealing. Don Quixote, described by Tchaikovsky as “very interesting, and perfect in places”, is an inventive and charming musical portrait of Cervantes’ fictional knight. This release completes the reissue of all six Symphonies previously available on Marco Polo.
