Hooray! I knew that you'd like it Cesar. Now, following your recommendation, I'll have to track down Symphony 1, especially if it's like Glazunov's 8th Symphony - which is one of my favourites.  :)

I felt that link between both works in terms of orchestration and late-Romantic flavour, though the MS's 2nd would be more accurate to compare with the Glazunov. Anyway, the 1st Sym. by Steinberg is wonderful indeed!

Here's a picture of Steinberg (standing) with his wife and father in law, Rimsky Korsakov (long beard) and Stravinsky:
