Quote from: SonicMan46 on Today at 16:46:47>Gliere, Reinhold (1875-1956) - Orchestral Collection w/ conductors, soloists, & band listed on the cover art below - bargain 5-disc set; purchase stimulated by a superb review in the recent issue of Fanfare; also an outstanding review on MusicWeb HERE, where the collection was chosen as the October 2011 'Recording of the Month'.

This is my first experience w/ this Russian (Ukrainian) composer who studied at the Moscow Conservatory (teachers included Arensky & Taneyev; several of his pupils were Khachaturian & Prokofiev).  Just getting started w/ CD 1 containing Symphony No. 3 (78 minutes) about the legendary 12th century warrior Ilya Muromets - WHAT a beginning!  Looking forward to hearing the other discs - :)





I love that 3rd Symphony, and Downes does an excellent job!

Something really lacking in my collection is work by female composers. Does anybody have any recommendations ?

Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphony No.7




Compliments.
Dear Prokofiev
You composed "The Year 1941".  Too bad you can't compose anything about this year.
Toodle pip Sergei!
Kind regards,
Scots John

Thank you, John :)
I think only Karajan made a more beautiful, powerful interpretation than Kleiber's one.

I love this recording.
As always, thoroughly enjoyed the folk settings. And The Warriors really is a favourite of mine - far too underrated. Obviously it would be great to see it live more often, whether that is possible due to the difficulties  I am not sure... certainly would be great though.

Love it! :)

I need to listen to more of Grainger. There's an attractive looking set on Chandos that I'll probably get. I remember The Warriors being a good work, but it's been quite some time since I heard it. By the way, Daniel, have you received any of the CDs you ordered yet? I'm looking forward to reading your reaction to that Schermerhorn VL set you bought, which I have really enjoyed.
