Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...The great horn melody of the slow movement brings identifiably Russian tone for Svetlanov, euphonium-like without unpleasant whining...in the symphony, Svetlanov finds inspiration in the finale, with a sparkling scherzo section leading to a beautiful Nocturne."

Edward Greenfield - Gramophone [8/1994]
