Russian Symphony Tour via Ukraine

Marco Polo 8.223540

Boris Lyatoshynsky

Symphony #2, Op. 26
Symphony #3 in B Minor, Op. 50

Ukrainian State Symphony Orchestra/Theodore Kuchar
Marco Polo 8.223540 76:40

Listening to these symphonies is almost a tour of the Russian symphony: there are Tchaikovsky, Glière, early Stravinsky, Rachmaninov, Myaskovsky, Shostakovich and so on. The feeling is mostly optimism and triumph with little of the bleakness that pervades his last symphonies. The recording (Kiev, 1993) has that somewhat reverberant sound typical of many recordings from Russia, where the engineers may have learned their craft.
