Quote from: J. Z. Herrenberg on October 31, 2012, 03:14:27 PMYes. I listened to the First Symphony, which I called 'the wilder sibling of Shostakovich's Fourth' earlier in this thread... Popov is very good. From what I have read, his life was tragic.
Quote from: J. Z. Herrenberg on October 31, 2012, 03:20:21 PMI agree that Shostakovich's Fourth is the better work. I don't remember a thing from Popov's First, whereas I already remembered several themes after I heard Shosta's Fourth only for the first time - they are more memorable. Still, Popov's First is a thrilling ride!
Quote from: Mirror Image on October 31, 2012, 03:34:11 PMIt seems that Popov's 2nd is much better than his 1st. I'd love to hear all of Popov's symphonies. Tishchenko is another composer that I bought many recordings of recently that I'm eager to explore. Are you familiar with his work?
Quote from: Mirror Image on October 31, 2012, 07:24:08 AMPopov's Symphony No. 2 is outstanding!http://www.youtube.com/v/SsoMtTgrEOIhttp://www.youtube.com/v/fYChBZipBWQhttp://www.youtube.com/v/WI23f_j-nQcThis symphony is definitely my glass of vodka. Sad that Soviet composers like Popov, Mossolov, Tishchenko continue to get ignored by the classical audiences. If the New York Philharmonic or Royal Concertgebouw performed Popov's Symphony No. 2, there is no doubt that he would have some new admirers of his music. It's all about exposure.

Quote from: pencils on August 20, 2013, 02:04:19 PMThere are days on this forum when I kind of feel I am running round in circles, pointing at things and making childish 'Ooh, look at that', noises. Today is yet another of those days.
