Quote from: Guido on June 12, 2007, 02:50:21 PMThe cello concerto is a superb work. It has the same sort of world weary nostalgia as the Elgar cello concerto, and was written at the end of the second world war (rather than the first). It's been recorded a few times, but I only recently heard the Rostropovich version - don't know why I'm surprised but it's easily the best version out there - his first recording. There's a live version too that is also superb. I thought I already loved the piece, but Rostropovich reveals it to be great work that it is - his colouring of the solo part is just wonderful.
Quote from: Captain Haddock on June 12, 2007, 01:21:32 PMAny other nutter fans of this great Russian composer? Am listening to Polyansky's fine recording of Symphony 27 (Chandos) with a fine coupling of the Cello Concerto (Alexander Ivashkin, soloist).
Quote from: tjguitar on June 13, 2007, 02:49:28 PMNo idea if this is a new recording, but I just saw this review of Op. 9:http://www.goldenscores.com/?a=classical&id=63
Quote from: Harry Collier on June 14, 2007, 12:06:51 AMThe violin concerto is excellent. There is a good modern recording of it by Vadim Repin with Gergiev. Also a 1939 recording with Oistrakh, or a recording by Grigory Feyghin.

Quote from: erato on July 04, 2007, 08:29:09 AMFrom the note on musicweb it seems that only the unreleased symphonies will be released. Since Olympia cuirrently is unavailable, does anybody know what will happen to those CDs already released and which currently seems to be unavailable?
