BORODIN, A.P.: Symphonies Nos. 1-3 (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Borodin’s symphonies exude lyricism and panache. The First took five years to complete but is a work of seamless melodic invention owing something to Mendelssohn, whose influence infuses it with delicious lightness. The Second Symphony is a more explicitly Russian work, pulsing with festive and march-like elements, high-spirited and boldly nationalistic. The Third was left incomplete, and was reconstructed and orchestrated by Glazunov with considerable facility and imagination. Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle Symphony have already demonstrated their prowess in music by another of the “Mighty Five”, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade (8.572693), acclaimed as “world class…nothing short of spectacular” (MusicWeb International).
