I came across this CD on Amazon while checking for new CD's: it is not new, but perhaps fans do not know about it.



Anyway, an Mp3 download for under $7.00 is available.

Although I am enjoying the new Naxos series, it can't compete with the Taneyev Quartet concerning expressiveness.

Expressiveness is not exactly one of Taneyev's strongest points, so i can see that being a problem.

Someone has placed a Byelorussian State Opera performance of Taneyev's The Oresteia.

I've had this CD for a few years and find it exceptional (especially the Quartet performance).

Many thanks for the mini-review!

Memo to NAXOS and other companies: More Taneyev!

We are still waiting for The Oresteia.

WOW!!!!   :)

Put on a life jacket and full scuba gear and oxygen tank.  Warning:  You will drown in a great big sea of Russian blood!!  This is so amazing.  My first listen to these Taneyev works.   WOW!!!  The more and more I hear 'first listens' for Taneyev, it just gets better and better.

I can't wait to listen to this again and once again battle the Russian Blood Sea!!

I'm starting to feel like I need to buy every single Taneyev recording in existence!  ;D :D

PS - In case I didn't make myself clear - I really, really love this CD!  :D 8)

What?  Taneyev the ripper?  The question now is 'will I ever be able to listen to Taneyev again without having that revolting image come to mind.  Not for a while.

Oops!  :D  In my uber enthusiasm, I ended up making it sound revolting, when in fact I was trying for the opposite effect.  :-[ :)

If you really LOVE Russian chamber music that actually sounds like Russian chamber music, then you'll like that String Trios disc.   :D

I have that string trio disc (it turned up at Berkshire for cheap) but haven't listened to it yet.

Taneyev can be an addicting drug!   0:)

And even though you are a chamber nut, the symphonies are not to be missed, especially #2 and #4.  And do not miss the Oresteia excerpts available.

I'm way ahead of you, Cato.  I have those!  :)  The Oresteia overture is amazing!  Would love to see a full-scale production, available on CD and DVD.

I really, really want all the Taneyev String Quartet recordings of Taneyev's chamber works on the Northern Flowers label.  Was hoping they would come down in price....but alas.  :(

Time to bite the bullet and spend!!  :D

Earth to Cato:  We have got to seriously haul ass if we plan on Taneyev's thread to overtake Havergal Brian's as the most posted 'Composer Thread' in the 'Composer Discussion' forum.  8) ;D

Ain't that the truth!   ;D   

Maybe we should claim that the Miaskovsky symphonies were actually composed by Taneyev!  Such crankery would crank up the computers here!
