real life isn't zhdanovian

I heard this recording just now and really enjoyed it.  Such a wonderful composer.  You can hear Prokofiev and Gliere - No. 17 is especially fine.  Both works are late 1970's and full of turmoil but lyrical.  This is a wonderful recording.

For some reason I couldn't locate the Ivanovs thread, so I've recently been posting stuff about Ivanovs on the 'Latvian Composers' thread. apologies.

Choir works

So, what did you think about the choral works Roy?

I hadn't heard of Ivanovs before now.  I see that he also wrote a cello (and other) concerto?  How is that work?

PD

Thanks, I'll check it out.  Any idea who the violinist and conductor are as they are not listed there?

This is a nice introduction to Ivanovs's orchestral music:
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

Regarding symphonies i prefer later works after 15 where he reached full expressive and dramatic maturity
