 Rubinstein at his best February 11, 2012 By Don O'Connor (Kreamer, PA) See All My Reviews "Gerald Abraham described this as Rubinstein's finest symphony and he was right. From beginning to end, it has one good theme after another, well developed and skilfully orchestrated; the opening bars will remind listeners of Boris Godunov. The slow movement has a beautiful melody, the scherzo has original themes and the finale caps the piece to a T. I only wish all his work was this inspired. The fillers, especially the Faust character-study, are also worthwhile. Performances and interpretation are both capable." Report Abuse
