Quote from: Mirror Image on June 14, 2022, 02:29:20 PMAlright, thanks, Jeffrey. Like you, I own two recordings of the 2nd symphony. I own around 12 recordings of his music, but I added some more today, which I'll post in the 'Purchases' thread momentarily.
Quote...Nemtin's own musical compositions are much less known to musicians or music lovers. They are written mostly in a traditional style, with predominantly diationic harmonies, their textures follow the vein of Romantic instrumental music with a very moderate implementation of neoclassical and more modernist elements of 20th century music.Among them is a large-scale work, titled the Concerto for Organ, which was composed in 1963. This composition is for solo organ, although in the large scale of its instrumental texture and the six varied movements comprising its overall formal design, it validates its somewhat extraordinary title. The Concerto for Organ is characterized by extended diatonic harmonies complemented with a large number of dissonant sonorities. It contains a dialogue with the Baroque style and elements of stylization in the vein of Bach and other Baroque composers. Stylization in the Concerto for Organ is expressed most visibly by its adherence to the genres of the Baroque period – preludes, canons, chorales, arias, ricercars and fugues. Nemtin's Concerto follows an extended tradition of lengthy and massive works for solo organ and organ with orchestra. Its academic formal qualities, broad use of contrapuntal techniques and adherence to well-known Baroque genres makes it aesthetically closer to the German organ tradition. In his instrumental composition of a large-scale genre Alexander Nemtin demonstrated himself as a master of large-scale form capable of thinking in categories of massive dramaturgy and philosophic thought. He has established his place in music history not only be creating the completed version of Scriabin's "Prefatory Action," but also with his own musical compositions which continue the tradition of orchestral, vocal and chamber instrumental music by 20th century Russian composers...
Quote from: Cato on September 10, 2022, 03:22:04 PMThe YouTube channel known for rarities has somehow come across the score and a recording of Yevgeny Svetlanov's Symphony from 1954.I am listening to the First Movement now: it sounds very Russian in the 19th-century sense. https://www.youtube.com/v/v_1gnQooK7I
Quote from: vandermolen on September 11, 2022, 12:22:26 AMIt also features in the Brilliant Svetlanov set Leo.

Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 01, 2023, 07:37:32 PMGood news! At last a performance (and hopefully a future recording) of his 4th Symphony, but I didn't recall it was written for soloists and chorus. Not enticing enough to me. BTW, Popov has his own thread.

Quote from: vers la flamme on July 07, 2023, 01:15:25 PMAny recommendations for later Soviet-era composers who flirted with the avant-garde, aside from Alfred Schnittke? I am aware of the reasons why composers of this species might be uncommon, but I suspect Schnittke must not be the only one...
Quote from: relm1 on July 07, 2023, 04:59:49 PMI would suggest Rodion Shchedrin, Galina Ustvolskaya, Sofia Gubaidulina, Boris Tishchenko for starters.
