Miaskovsky: Symphony No. 23: Symphony Suite Op. 56 [Svetlanov]





I really like the opening movement with its multiplicity of themes and moods. Equally intriguing is the harmonic writing. His musical language is evolving again around now. The sweeping strings and melodies of the middle movement are also very appealing and I know that I am repeating myself but the woodwind harmonies and themes are exquisite here. There is great drive and energy in the final movement leaving one almost breathless.

Amazingly, your Miaskovsky symphonic discovery journey is nearing an end!  :)

Yes, and I do not want it to so I am dragging it out a little at the end so as to prolong it for as long as I can  ;D

Of, course, but there is nothing like hearing good music for the first time and feeling that initial impact that it has on you.

This is wonderfully civilised, urbane music making, the orchestral contribution beautifully lucid and the piano playing a model of clarity and musicality. Whereas this approach works supremely well in an early work, like the Classically contoured second concerto, it does lack a little of the power required for the 5th concerto. All in all, there is much to enjoy, but ultimately I think I prefer a little more Sturm und Drang, especially in the later concertos.
