Notes and Editorial Reviews

Chandos is famous for its recordings of Russian music, and in recent years Polyansky and his orchestra and choir have recorded much Russian repertoire. As one would expect from a Russian, he has a unique insight into the music of his native land, which gives these performances great authority. On this disc the powerfully romantic 'Sixth Symphony' is coulped with the rarely heard, but charmingly balletic 'Characteristic Suite'.
