MOYZES, A.: Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 (Slovak Radio Symphony, L. Slovák)

Alexander Moyzes’s symphonic cycle is the best-known by a Slovak composer. His synthesis of Slovak influences and contemporary trends in European music informs every strand of his compositions. The Symphony No. 7, Op. 50 is his largest and most powerful orchestral statement, which he dedicated to the memory of his young daughter. Peasant scenes, folk dances and exceptional lyric beauty form the bedrock of a passionate and dramatic work. Written as a response to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in August 1968, Symphony No. 8, ‘21.08.1968’, Op. 64 is a brooding lament that shares affinities with Shostakovich’s symphonic writing.
