SYMPHONIES PART 1 – Innovative Traditions

Russian Masterpieces and Rarities

Glière, Taneyev, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Stravinsky

Delve into the soul of Russian music and immerse yourself in symphonies by such beloved composers as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, which seem to express both the tragedy and triumph of the human spirit. Alongside these towering masterpieces, which rank among the most popular and frequently recorded symphonies, discover equally enjoyable yet unfairly neglected works by Glière and Taneyev, with their sweeping melodies and nationalist inflections. The seductive mysticism of Scriabin initially influenced Lyatoshynsky, who later developed his own musical style and is honoured as the father of contemporary Ukrainian music.
