Very worthwhile accounts of both symphonies from Dmitri Yablonsky and the Moscow Philharmonic. Yablonsky’s account of No. 25, Miaskovsky’s first post-war symphony, holds up well against Svetlanov’s (coupled with No. 1). He is less expansive in the glorious first movement but no less heartfelt. This is particularly haunting and moving, full of the all-pervasive melancholy which is echt-Miaskovsky. The recording is decent and, although those collecting the Svetlanov cycle will want to complete it, those who cannot wait will find the modest outlay here well worth while.
"An excellent sense of weight and balance throughout. This is vibrant and sensitive playing and does Myaskovsky proud. The recent mini proliferation of Myaskovsky on disc will gladden many a heart and here's another reason to be content. No complaints at all about the disc? None."
